About this Event

Dear Friends

I would be delighted if you can join me for the GradVenture 2019/20 Final, the inaugural pitching competition for budding entrepreneurs from the University of London in partnership with Michael Hayman MBE Co-Founder SevenHills ‘Campaigning for Change Makers’ on Thursday 12th March 5.30pm (Student Stalls 5pm).

The competition aims to inspire entrepreneurship and encourage students and graduates to start their own businesses, as well as introducing them to networking opportunities beyond the colleges they study at. Eight finalists from University of London Member Institutions in the categories of ‘Creative’ and ‘Social Purpose’ will pitch their business ideas to four prestigious judges: at stake is a share of a £10,000 prize.

The Grand Final follows the Semi-Final competitions and accompanying public events on Saturday 1st February at Goldsmiths for the ‘Creative’ teams and on Saturday 8th February at Queen Mary. The talks and workshop events on the challenges and rewards of founding and running, respectively a creative business (at Goldsmiths) and a business with a social purpose (at Queen Mary University) are open to current UoL students, staff and recent graduates.

Participating UoL Member Institutions in GradVenture 2019-20 are City, University of London; Goldsmiths, University of London; King’s College London; Queen Mary University of London; St Mary’s University Twickenham London and UCL. GradVenture is organised by The Careers Group, University of London.

I hope to see you there,

Best wishes
