What's On - Events

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

 

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.

There are also plenty of great online courses and activities we have collated for anyone interested in entrepreneurship.
