St Anne’s College is proud to host an inspiring group of entrepreneurs to demystify the field of entrepreneurship and explain some of the paths to a career in this field.
Our speakers will present their first-hand experiences from different areas of the start-up ecosystem, from founding and growing successful companies to investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs. The talks will be followed by a Q&A panel session featuring young entrepreneurs sharing their journeys to show their routes into the field. With this range of involvement, you will be able to get a feel for how to be a part of start-ups from joining an existing team to developing your own ideas.
This event is open to everyone and free to attend. There will be a networking drinks reception following the talks where you will be able to carry on discussion.
