Each year, the Centre For Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies calls on its Enterprise Ambassador community to take part in 'Speed Networking'. During this event, students on the MSc Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies and final year 'With Enterprise' students are invited to meet with the Ambassadors and quiz them on their experiences of setting up and running their own business. Much like speed dating, after 10 minutes, the students are asked to swap tables and move on to the next Ambassador!
The students asked us excellent questions!
Due to the event being online this year, it was a smaller group of students who participated this time and they were able to have some great in-depth discussions. The students got to pick the brains of Jonathan Straight, from Planet Straight, Paul Cartmell, from Marlings Winery and Barney Quinn of Oxehealth.
Our Enterprise Ambassador community provide advice and support to enterprise students at the University of Leeds. As they have set up their own businesses, they can help advise those who are considering this in the future!
