How to go From Student to Startup


How do you go from business studies to making butter? From studying Classics & Drama to creating digital media? How does a phd student go from corporate then to startup? How do you incorporate social enterprise into your own business dream? What’s it like to fail and start again?

A 22 year old with a dream to own a business will have all kinds of questions.

Startup Salon returns on Thursday 8th October in our space at 4 Dame Lane from 18:30 - 21:00.

The event is part of the Startup Gathering, and is dedicated to students and graduates to answer the many questions they have as they face the big world as aspiring entrepreneurs. The panel will discuss the many ways of making the transition from student to startup and the many paths that will lead them to where they want to go in life.
