After 5 years of working for the world's largest accountancy firm Emma Jones decided she wanted to be her own boss and at 27 years old started up her own business called Techlocate. Two years later she sold the business to a quoted company then came up with the idea for Enterprise Nation, a website for the millions of people who are starting up and growing their businesses from home. Emma researched the home business market for two years then in January 2006 launched her home business website at http://www.enterprisenation.com
We will be giving away a copy of Emma's book "Spare Room Start Up" to one lucky winner!
Enterprise Thursdays are fun and free events open to staff, students, alumni, and members of the local business community. They take place in the BSMS Medical School on campus (with registration taking place between 5.30pm - 6pm).
The evening events begin with a talk by an inspirational person from the world of business, charity or social enterprise. Each Enterprise Thursday concentrates upon a particular theme, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions throughout, to make the event as interactive as possible. The talk is followed by the chance to chat to and get to know the other students, and staff and the chance to talk to the speaker on a more informal level. Enterprise Thursdays attract a wide range of interest and all that attend are warmly welcomed.
Local family firms Harvey & Sons Brewery and Forfars Bakeries are keen supporters of Enterprise Thursdays, providing delicious, free refreshments after the presentations.
Doors open at 5.30pm, and the talks start at 6pm. Enterprise Thursdays take place here at the University of Sussex in the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. Here is a link to the campus map - http://www.sussex.ac.uk/findus/campus.php - it is building number 46.
