Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the University of Warwick is showcasing the Warwick Innovation District and It’s new space in Junction. Join us on Thursday 11th November 2021, in person, or online by registering for a day of inspiration, networking, innovation and catching up!

There is lots to show you – our space is newly refurbished and ready for innovating! There will be stands showcasing the business support we offer and our business collaborators, including the new NatWest Accelerator. Some of our successful entrepreneurs will be exhibiting too, showing the diversity of the products and services we support. We also have a new Esports space and kit, Incubator and Accelerator programmes, and you can meet the team too!

There is lots to tell you too – with a series of informal sessions talking about raising finance and investment, business support and being part of our network. Some of our partners will join us, and there will be members of the team on hand to answer innovation questions and queries.
Whether you’re a student with ambition, alumni, staff member, academic, local business, or entrepreneur – Come and see what’s new at the University of Warwick.

We will be celebrating our new spaces and programmes with coffee, cake and festivities for those joining us in person, so book early! Booking is essential so click here to see our calendar of events:

We are really keen to hear from alumni that might want to help coach, mentor, sponsor or support our entrepreneurs and innovators too. Please do come along or contact us through the webpages if you would like to join our network.
