OSEFx is coming on 26 February: a free, virtual conference that introduces you to the most pioneering entrepreneurs and the most cutting-edge ventures. The event boasts keynotes by Niklas Zennström, Founding Partner, Atomico and Bracken Darrell, CEO, Logitech as well as discussions with other top industry practitioners. Together these will deliver the forum’s main objectives: to engage, inform and inspire the vibrant Oxford entrepreneurial community and promote entrepreneurship beyond.

This year, as we consider the world beyond Covid-19, we have thrown the discussion open as wide as we can. Previous editions have brought together some 500 students, entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from around the world at a ticketed conference in Oxford. This year OSEFx is both online and completely free, providing an important opportunity for as many entrepreneurs as possible to consider how we might Build back better: to discuss ideas, connect communities and develop ventures.

For the recovery from the COVID-19 crisis to be durable, a return to ‘business as usual’ is not an option. This means doing more than just getting economies quickly back on their feet. Well-designed recovery measures should help us shift to more responsible business practices and encourage us to greater resilience. OSEFx aims to bring together prominent entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders for a meaningful exploration of how we can build a more equitable future for all.

At OSEFx, you will hear field-creating keynote speakers whose professional journeys will inspire you. Panel discussions will take a deeper dive into specific topics, allowing you to engage in conversation and discussion. For students at the University of Oxford, exclusive networking sessions with speakers will be scheduled to develop more meaningful relationships between students and speakers. Finally, a pitch competition will showcase ventures from across the Oxford ecosystem with a prize of £10,000 to help the winning venture develop their business further.

This year’s theme is ‘Build back better’. The forum will be a virtual event composed of keynote speakers and panel discussions to bring together notable entrepreneurs and industry practitioners. OSEFx keynote speakers are pioneers in their field, their entrepreneurial journeys are inspirational, and their companies have had incredible impact on the world we live in. Panel discussions will take a deeper dive into specific topics, allowing for engaging conversation and discussion. Finally, a pitch competition will showcase ventures from across the Oxford ecosystem.

Who should attend

The forum is open to all and provides a platform for impactful networking to build relationships with budding entrepreneurs and investors. For students at the University of Oxford, exclusive networking sessions with speakers will be scheduled to develop more meaningful relationships.
