The St Andrews Business Club is encouraging students to attend their headline event as part of the University of St Andrews’ Enterprise Week 2018. The keynote talk will feature four prominent entrepreneurs who will speak of their experiences in the business world and will answer questions.
Business leaders Chris van der Kuyl, Sam Trett, Lizzie Brough, and Jen Munro will be attending Parliament Hall on Monday October 8 at 7pm to give their thoughts on why students should start their own businesses instead of being an employee of one. Entry is free and networking with drinks will commence at 5:30pm.
Chris van der Kuyl is the Chairman and co-founder of 4J Studios, a video game developer. Sam Trett set up a spirits company called Minus 33. Lizzie Brough is the co-founder of Kindaba – a family private social network – while Jen Munro is the Managing Director and founder of international summer school firm ISSOS International.
This is the second consecutive year that the event has been organised by the St Andrews Business Club. Their president Alan S. Morrison said: “We’re delighted to have been asked to contribute to this event for a second year to help inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and business people. The Club welcomes them to any of our own events and we look forward to hearing stories which will doubtless inspire our members too.”
The Enterprise and Employability Advisor at the university said: “We’d like to thank St Andrews Business Club for its continued contribution to this event to promote entrepreneurship in our students and in the local community.”
Tickets are available on the Business Club website at www.standrewsbusinessclub.co.uk and on Eventbrite.
