UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) announced the launch of a new venture today aimed at boosting Britain’s community of young entrepreneurs with global ambitions. The Entrepreneur Festival will offer final year students (BA/BSc level, Masters or Research degree programmes) and recent graduates from universities around the world an intensive induction into what it’s like to be a young entrepreneur in the UK.
Hosted in Manchester from 4-6 September, the Festival will bring budding entrepreneurs from a huge range of different countries together to learn about, and be mentored in, how to start a business in the UK. It will provide an opportunity to meet investors and inspirational mentors to get insight and advice, visits to UK businesses in a variety of sectors, and experience of working with peers from around the world to tackle practical business challenges.
The UK is one of the best places in the world to become an entrepreneur and the UKTI want to attract graduate talent into the UK to do just that, offering the guidance and support of the country’s entrepreneurial community, experts and specialist networks. If you’re a final year student or graduate and you have an exciting idea that you think one day will create a successful business, come to UKTI’s Entrepreneur Festival and find out how you can realise your ambition.
