Events for budding entrepreneurs

12 Oct 2011

Keen entrepreneurs have the opportunity to hone their skills and make valuable networking connections at two events taking place next month as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The first event is a Case Study Challenge, which will see attendees given a case study about a real startup business at the ecentre and tasked with delivering a presentation based on that information to a panel of judges.

Later in the week will be a Business Idea Workshop, which will focus on validating business ideas and creating successful business models. 

Both events will offer the chance to network with ecentre entrepreneurs and other aspiring businesspeople.  

The Case Study Challenge will take place on Tuesday November 15 from 12:45pm to 6pm, while the Business Idea Workshop will be held on Friday November 18 from 10am to 12pm. Global Entrepreneurship Week is an international event running from November 14 to 20.
