Join us and be inspired to follow your passions, with Dr. Cecilia Muldoon, avid oenophile, physicist, classic car fanatic and amateur ballerina!
Open to: All DPhil students, All Research Staff and All Masters students of: Medical Sciences Division; Social Sciences Division; MPLS Division; Humanities Division
Combining her Oxford DPhil in Atomic and Laser Physics and her experiences as president of the Oxford University Wine Circle, Cici went on to found VeriVin, an innovative startup developing a unique non-invasive wine analyser and working on the quantum-enhanced spectroscopic sensing of trace compounds in sealed containers. Building on our previous talks (by established and highly successful academic, Professor Dame Carol Robinson, and energetic and charismatic post-docs, Dr Denise Xifara, co-founder of Nupinion, and Elina Naydenova, co-founder of outstanding social enterprise Fairfull) Cici Muldoon will be sharing lessons and insights from her journey from researcher to entrepreneur and CEO.
As usual we will be offering a networking lunch, from local social enterprises who combine making delicious food with doing good! We will also have people from Oxford University Innovation, Enterprising Oxford, and Student Hubs on hand, ready to tell you about what they offer and how they can support you in developing your ideas and skills as a budding entrepreneur, so come along and join us. Over lunch you will be able to arrange short 1 to 1 meetings with these supporters.
Just to remind you, we are working to build an enterprising ecosystem of support for women entrepreneurs as a joint programme being run by MPLS Women's Network and MPLS Enterprise.
