Event description
Start-Up Stars: How I turned my business idea into a reality

About this Event

The Start-Up Stars panel discussion will provide you with the opportunity to hear from a panel of early stage entrepreneurs about how they launched their companies, and what it really takes to make your business dreams come true.

Our panel of business owners will talk candidly about taking the plunge to becoming self-employed, what they've learned along the way, what they wished they had known before they started, and why it was all worth it in the end.

Followed by a networking lunch (provided) and the chance to speak to advisors and case-studies.
