What's it all about?
Whether you are an entrepreneur who would like some hints and tips from others in business, a recent business start up or you are thinking of setting up your own business, you can gain valuable insight and know-how through our Entrepreneurship Experience talks organised by the Kingston University Entrepreneurship Centre (KUEC).
Each talk focuses on a particular aspect of being an entrepreneur. Two skilled and practised entrepreneurs will lead you through their experiences, motivations, what keeps them going when the going gets tough and where and how they have found help with and solutions to business problems.
At each event you will have the opportunity to ask questions and to exchange experiences with academic staff and other entrepreneurs and attendees.
