Enterprise on the agenda again at Cambridge
Inspiring innovation across the East of England and beyond – Cambridge’s Enterprise Tuesday returns. The most influential programme in the entrepreneurial calendar returns on Oct 24 with BBC Radio 4 presenter Peter Day in the chair.Enterprise Tuesday is a series of free evening lectures and networking sessions run by the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) from October to February. It is open to students, University staff and members of the business community.
The 2006/07 programme boasts an amazing line up of first class speakers including René Carayol (BBC presenter of ‘Mind of a Millionaire’), Lord Karan Bilimoria (Founder of Cobra Beer) and Dr. Hermann Hauser (Founder of Acorn and serial entrepreneur). Enterprise Tuesday has already inspired many to start up businesses and presents a great networking opportunity.
The Enterprise Tuesday concept has been copied extensively by other institutions and businesses in the UK and abroad. It has been adapted by Oxford, Luton, Reading, Sussex, Essex, and Auckland NZ Universities. The India Institute of Production and Manufacturing has developed an Enterprise Saturday.
It is a major focus on entrepreneurship for the University demonstrating the application of learning to solve problems and create businesses. Over the last three years, Enterprise Tuesday has grown steadily with over 800 attendees in 2005/06 and is closing the gap between the University and business community.
Enterprise Tuesday is run in conjunction with Cambridge Enterprise and the Cambridge Enterprise Agency.
It is also coordinated with the Cambridge University Entrepreneurs (CUE) business creation competitions.
