Description

The launch of UWS Business School Enterprise Zone took place from Thursday 19th to Friday 20th January.
The events occurred during the launch of UWS Business School Enterprise Zone are as follows:
On Thursday morning (from 10 a.m. to 12a.m.), the event offered students the opportunity to drop into the Enterprise Zone to get a LinkedIn profile picture, to meet with an Employability Advisor and try out the new Oculus Virtual Reality kit! More details can be found here.

On Thursday afternoon (from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.), the official launch of the Enterprise zone took place. Attendees were representatives from external bodies (e.g. SIE, Council, Entrepreneurial E-Spark, among others), UWS executive board (e.g. the Vice- Principal, the Dean of the School of Business and Enterprise, the formal Dean, among others), and UWS School of Business and Enterprise staff.

On Friday morning (from 10 a.m. to 12a.m.), the event titled ‘Meet the Entrepreneurs Breakfast’ offered students the opportunity to meet seven expert entrepreneurs for a one-off in the Enterprise Zone. The event was free and opened to all students at the University of the West of Scotland.
After some breakfast rolls, entrepreneurs spent 10 minutes with a small group of students. Their entrepreneurial journey was delivered in five minutes and then students had the opportunity to ask questions. The scope was to provide students with some expert advice and could even secure some work experience. It also helped those looking to write their dissertation on the topic of enterprise.

On Friday afternoon (from 1 to 2p.m.), a Social Media Taster Masterclass was delivered by Theo Tzanidis, expert Digital Marketer in the Enterprise Zone.
