On the evening of April 3, ‘Start-up Stories’, the first in a series of networking events hosted by the GradPreneur Club got underway at Devonshire House. The events are the brainchild of the GradPreneur Club’s founder, Raspinder Singh and have been designed to inspire and inform enterprising undergraduates/graduates through the experience and achievements of successful, young entrepreneurs.

The event, which was sponsored by Kingston Smith, began with an opportunity to network before Singh invited attendees to take their seats.

Introduction

The three speakers were joined on stage by Chris Lane of Kingston Smith and Singh, who began by introducing the event and explaining that it would aim to help bridge the gap between university and entrepreneurship. 

After thanking the speakers, attendees and sponsors; Singh identified that large youth unemployment figures could only be improved by: “Entrepreneurial ventures, resulting in successful start-ups that create jobs”. He went onto say that he hoped the series of start-up events would provide a platform for collaboration as well as for the sharing of resources, reiterating that: “resourcefulness is the most important characteristic an entrepreneur must possess.”
