Entrepreneur's Journey Series
Helping you through every step of your start-up journey.
Embark on a transformative entrepreneurial journey with the Entrepreneurs' Journey event series. Whether you're just starting or growing your business, this series offers valuable insights from seasoned entrepreneurs, providing you with the opportunity to learn how they've overcome challenges and seized opportunities. They share their experiences and practical wisdom, while professional practitioners cover essential legal and financial aspects of entrepreneurship.
The program's workshops, speakers, and panel sessions run during Autumn and Spring terms, fitting seamlessly with your studies. Some events are open to the public, offering a broader audience the chance to benefit from expert insights.
At IEPC, we acknowledge the challenges and uncertainties that often accompany the path to entrepreneurial success. In line with this, we've also teamed up with The Company of Entrepreneurs, a collective of industry experts, to bring you the "Ask an Entrepreneur" sessions. The "Ask an Entrepreneur" series, once held as a standalone event, has now been seamlessly integrated into the Entrepreneur's Journey series, running three times a year.
This integration enhances your learning experience, providing a more comprehensive resource to navigate the intricacies of entrepreneurship. Learn with industry experts from The Company of Entrepreneurs as they discuss their startup experiences, focusing on a specific topic while applying it in a real-life business context during the session. Witness engaging dialogues between emerging startup founders and seasoned entrepreneurs. These conversations cover a wide range of entrepreneurial topics, offering you actionable insights and strategies you can apply to your own venture. They will share their personal experiences, strategies, and practical tips that have driven their success. View here.
