Are you keen to build a business in computing but you feel in need of some expert advice?
Have you got a great idea but you don’t know where to take it?
Join us at UCL on Tuesday 19 February to hear from our diverse panel of experts who will share their insights on the key steps for entrepreneurial success in computing. Get advice and guidance on issues from how to start building up your commercial exposure, to winning new clients and maintaining those key relationships.
Whether you have recently entered the job market or you are keen to make a career change, this event will be a fantastic opportunity to connect with fellow UCL alumni and industry specialists while exploring the challenges of ‘going it alone’. Alumni are invited to bring questions for the panel, contribute to the discussion and network over drinks and nibbles (included in the ticket price).
