Throughout the day, we visited Makerversity at Somerset House, heard from Brunel Alumni Emma Obanye and Andy Ayim at Capital Enterprise, followed by our final stop of the crawl, WeWork, where we heard from Brunel Alumnus and founder of Latest Free Stuff Deepak Tailor and his co-founder Tom Church. In between stops, students took part in bus activities such as Ice breaker quizzes, social media competitions and much more.
After a day of hearing entrepreneurial insights and advice from top entrepreneurs, the Brunel University venture crawl team met with all London university teams at Plexal for the final event. At Plexal, our budding entrepreneurs were able to participate in networking games, designed to encourage all universities to build relationships. Brunel student Paris Reveira was part of the winning ‘Networking Champions 2020’ team. Attendees went on to hear top tips from entrepreneur Holly Tucker, founder of ‘Not on the Highstreet’, which was followed by an inter-university pitch-off with 400+ London University entrepreneurial students. Current student, Vidhi Desai represented Brunel University London with an excellent 90 second business pitch.
