What's On - Events

Looking for events? Here’s a continually updated list of startup, business and entrepreneurship events being held across Oxfordshire.

If you are a student, staff or researcher at the University of Oxford, you can also download the Inkpath app and join our Engaging with Entrepreneurship programme to see, book, and record attendance at any events you may find here.

As the advice and situation around COVID-19 develops, please check with event organisers (not Enterprising Oxford) for any specific details for events.  We will update our events calendar with any information as we find or receive it, but we may not always have 100% updated information for any given event.

If you are looking for guidance, please have a look at the official University of Oxford guidance on the Coronavirus (Covid-19): advice and updates page, which is regularly reviewed and updated.
