Entrepreneurship Week & Venture Competition 2018


Entrepreneurship Week and Venture Competition 2018

Hi everyone!

Slightly unusual start to this year’s blogs, I know, but sometimes life gets in the way of properly scheduled blog posts hehe. Setting that aside, we hope that you have had a lovely time over the holidays and are now ready to take in the New Year - in the least cheesy way possible, one motivational quote at a time.


The first blog for this year is about our upcoming Entrepreneurship Week during which the Venture Competition Final will take place as well. The week starting 19th – 23rd February will be one of the busiest for the Centre of Entrepreneurship as we have a series of lectures and workshops organized in honour of entrepreneurship as it runs parallel to the city of Dundee’s wider Business Week. The best part is that all events taking place during that week are absolutely free for students, staff and the wider public to attend. However, keep in mind that there is limited availability of tickets for each workshop/lecture, so if you’re interested in any of the lectures make sure to book your tickets asap!

 ‌Mr Mark Beaumont 

One of the highlights of the week is going to be the Principal’s Annual Lecture in Entrepreneurship which will be delivered by Mark Beaumont who will give his insights into what makes a successful entrepreneur. Mark Beaumont has become a household name through his documentaries about ultra-endurance and adventure. Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000-mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day. His epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries. The Annual Lecture will take place on Wednesday 21st of February at 18.oo pm, you can book tickets here


The closing event for Entrepreneurship week will be the Venture Competition 2018 Final. The deadline for applications is still open until February 6th at 11.59 pm so if you’re considering applying, there is a share of £26k prize fund for the winners and their business ideas.

Entrepreneurship Week is looking promising and we’re hoping that people will make the most out of it not only because of the hard work put into it by its organizers, but also because it has a lot to offer to people who are interested in setting up their own startup.

We hope to see you all there!

Until next time,
