Enterprise Tuesday takes place in November and February each year. In general, the theme of the first term of lectures is inspiration and the second term is about information or the 'how to' of becoming an entrepreneur. Please register online if you would like to attend.

Venue: Lecture Theatre 0, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge
Vision Meets Reality
This session looks at how the vision needs to meet with reality. The entrepreneur needs to be true and wedded to their beliefs and vision for the business venture, but also, to be open to learning and taking feedback. It is important to be flexible with business models in the early days. This session demonstrates the importance of entrepreneurial self-awareness for learning and reflection purposes as well as the need for personal direction, drive, persuasion and persistence. Participants will learn about strategy and developing business models to achieve the vision. It will look at the influence of early customers and sales and the role of mentors, company directors, etc. in shaping business models.
Enterprise Tuesday One-One Clinics
