Inspiring Entrepreneurs Event: Internet Icons Live Screening
Tue 7 February 2017, 17:45 – 20:30 GMT
The Inspiring Entrepreneurs event is back! And it's bigger and better than ever...
Teaming up with our brilliant pals at the British Library, we are once again offering start-ups, entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Sheffield City Region, the low-down on just how the biggest and best online talent out there made it! with an #InternetIcons themed live screening.
And that's not all... we will be welcoming special guests, Chris and Jake of Blue Shift Video.
We are pleased to introduce locally-based business - Blueshift Video - and the entrepreneurs behind this successful start-up, recent graduates and business partners, Chris and Jake.
Put simply, Blueshift Video provides businesses with high quality video content, from promos to how-to's and everything in between. “We are all about promoting your business with style and a human story. It’s not just about how good you are, it’s about how you tell your story… highlighting customer benefits using the human aspect of your business to put yourself ahead and most importantly, in front of target client markets” says Chris.
Trained in film-making, Blueshift Video has a different approach to promoting business. They recognise that clients want a reason to decide to purchase a product or service, it’s not about the price but about how you ‘sell’ the business story.
Jake says, “We enjoy capturing people doing what they love and we can deliver that to make you stand out and engage with your customer-base. Ultimately we want everyone, owners and customers alike, to be excited by their business.”
