Since our successful launch we’ve been very honoured to have been invited to take part in the very special Global Entrepreneurship Week launch event in London featuring James Caan. For one week, all around the world, activities will be taking place to help aspiring entrepreneurs and early stage start-ups to move their business forward and build connections.
The Accountancy Cloud are proud to be one of the partners at the launch event on Monday, November 17th, together with Start Up Direct , Youth Business International, the host of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Barclays and other partners. This year’s theme is “Stay connected” – It is an informal, networking event aimed at entrepreneurs / aspiring entrepreneurs to get connected, give practical support to people who have started or are trying to start their own business and promote the value of mentoring.
Come along to our informal workshop and ask experts about accessing funding, learn about why mentorship is important and how best benefit from it, and be inspired by other entrepreneurs’ tales of how they turned their ideas into reality.
The event will take place at The Escalator (http://theescalator.com/barclays-accelerator.html) a vibrant community of startups, corporates, innovators, and investors together with a state-of-the-art event space and two world-class accelerators in east London.
Wesley Rashid of The Accountancy Cloud comments
“Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business so as you can tell, we’re immensely proud to be involved and demonstrates we’re making great progress in helping build UK’s tech start up community.”
In the UK, the campaign is hosted by Youth Business International, a global network of initiatives that help young entrepreneurs to start their own business, in partnership with Barclays. We believe that a large national campaign to promote entrepreneurship is a vital part of making the UK more entrepreneurial, to encourage more people to start up their own business.
Our aim is to create a collaborative, local and practical event which enables people to learn more about the wealth of support that is available to tech entrepreneurs in the UK, turning their idea into a manageable, scalable business.
