Confessions of an Entrepreneur is a guest speaker series from the Oxford Launchpad and the Careers Service, designed to help you get an insight into the mindset of current entrepreneurs. You’ll learn tips, tricks – and the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur, or entrepreneurial. Ben is part of the team that started LOVESPACE, the UK's first and largest storage by-the-box service with collection and delivery across the country. Prior to his MBA at Oxford (2012) Ben was part of the early Streetcar team (sold to Zipcar) and helped grow other start-ups on a consultancy basis. He is an active angel investor in a number of early stage businesses and has a keen interest in social enterprise. Ben will share his journey starting at University, where he undertook a number of internships in investment banking, quickly learning that it wasn’t the right path for him. Taking the difficult decision to join an early stage start-up, he faced a number of challenges that taught him how crucial it is to be resilient. Ben will talk about the importance of being prepared to roll up your sleeves, the challenges (and benefits) of doing it all over again with a new business and how essential hiring the right team is.
