StartUp Bus comes to the University of East Anglia

Message from the University:

“On Thursday October 25 a double-decker bus, organised by national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain, will be bringing a team of entrepreneurs, business authors and experts to visit students on campus.

The idea behind the visit is to show Norwich students how to get access to the support, guidance and funding that exists, pointing them towards specialist mentors and giving them the chance to speak to already-successful entrepreneurs.

Business hosts on-board the bus will include: Michael Hayman, co-founder of StartUp Britain and Seven Hills; Patrick Andrews, university marketing manager at enternships.com; Richard Salmon, business advisor at NWES; Peter Richardson, director at Secos (Partners) Limited; and Ian Stirling, founder of Objectives Reached.

Also attending will be Amina Toullea, a business advisor from Rise To; Mark and Karen, business advisors from ICAEW; Andrew Martin, an entrepreneur from Chamexpress; Richard Glinn, a business advisor from Foundation East; and Kate Wilde, a business advisor from Engage with Business.

The bus will be parked close to Union House from 2:30pm, and students paying a visit will receive a free goodie bag containing over £200 of offers.

For further information please contact Matthew Draycott, Enterprise and Employability Officer, on +44 (0) 1603 59 3248, or m.draycott@uea.ac.uk.”

  1. Thanks for writing a blog about this – it’s important the students are aware – especially if there are £200 worth of free goodies at stake! We’ll definitely be promoting this to the business students!
