From 17th to 19th November, Startup Weekend, a 54-hour event where people can develop any current ideas they have that could possibly end up making a positive difference to society, is being hosted at University of Exeter’s Business School. This event is open to anyone with a new product or idea, with the result to hopefully be for them to turn these initial ideas into a possible business. Students will be placed into teams, pitching their idea to a panel of experts, as well as business mentors being on hand throughout the weekend to give talks on their personal business experiences, and share their wisdom. The Business School at The University of Exeter was recently voted as having the top MBA program for sustainable social change, so with this knowledge, and knowing that some of Exeter’s most recognised entrepreneurs will be returning, this is set to be a great experience. Adam Lusby, Circular Economy Specialist at the University said: “The Business School is delighted to be hosting Exeter’s seventh Startup Weekend. I am particularly pleased that this edition will focus on creating business with purpose, which reminds participants about their core values, helping to create a more engaged and connected society. All businesses want to make money, but the majority also want to make a difference and we are eager to help them with that.” Tickets for the weekend are available from Eventbrite, and if you require further information you can contact Natalie Collard
