Event description

Description

Entrepreneurship and the labour market is an increasingly discussed topic within universities and across the UK. New technology, changing attitudes towards work and the emergence of new marketplaces is resulting in more people considering and setting up their own businesses.

This free lecture part of the University’s Insight Series, will explore the ever changing face of employment and entrepreneurship, at a national and local level. During the evening we will discover how business start-ups can positively contribute to the economic and cultural success of a city. Following Solent’s success being a top 10 university for graduate business start-ups, we will hear from a successful entrepreneur from Solent, on how they have established their business within Southampton.

Join us to hear from Stephen Brown, Senior Lecturer in Business and other industry experts on the changing world of employment and take away top tips for entrepreneurial success. Our guest speakers for the evening includes:

Elena Magrini from Centre for Cities: Elena will discuss the changing nature of the labour market both locally and nationally as well as, trends with self-employment.

Stephen Brown: Stephen will provide recommendations on how to develop a start-up and provide further insight into entrepreneurship within the city. Also, following Solent’s success in graduate start-up, Stephen will review what the positive support that the city offers to business start-ups and how we can build on this?

A local Solent Alum: Hear from a Solent Alum on how they are successfully running and developing a business within Southampton.
