Enterprise Tuesday triumphs again

The 2013/2014 Enterprise Tuesday series of free evening lectures and networking sessions attracted over 1,400 registrations and, on average, 300 people to each weekly session.

Attendees came from over 70 departments within the University, over 150 local business organisations and over 30 other academic institutions. The attendance of those from the local business community is up by 4% on last year.

Besides the support of attendees from within University of Cambridge, who make up the bulk of this programme’s audience, it was, again, supported those from further afield. During the last year  attendees have been  welcomed from Laurea University, Finland (21 attendees), HAMK University of Applied Sciences, Finland (16 attendees), Lahti University of Applied Sciences, Finland (11 attendees) and Zhejiang University, China (5 attendees).

Consistency of attendance at Enterprise Tuesday has been encouraged by the offering, once again, of the Certificate of Attendance which is awarded to those within the University who attend at least six of the eight sessions. 2013/2014 saw 109 individuals being eligible for this award. The Centre will host a small celebration on 16th June at Cambridge Judge Business School where Prof Stelios Kavadias, Margaret Thatcher Professor of Enterprise Studies in Innovation & Growth Director of Research, will hand out certificates.

Enterprise Tuesday again included activities such as a range of Discussion Groups run by student societies (CUE, CUIF and Beyond Profit) and the CIM. Such additions to the programme are part of the Centre's aim to engage more with its audience and particularly the needs and interests of students.

The Centre would particularly like to acknowledge and thank the contribution of the 27 entrepreneurial individuals who shared their knowledge and insights through presentations or panels, as well as the experts who chaired the sessions during the series.
