The Launch Lab is a weekly session geared toward anyone who owns or is starting their own business. A highly varied group of energetic, intelligent people gather to exchange ideas, share critiques and encouragement, and feed each others’ vitality. Since it’s the first meetup of the month, it’s the pitch session this week! Four attendees have stepped up to the challenge to put themselves out there with an elevator pitch. Now we need critiquers to give their valuable advice – as many and varied as possible! Join in at the venue, this week you may want to BYOC (bring your own coffee) so the coffee makers aren’t too overwhelmed. It’s a wonderful bunch of folks!
E-Club is back with a May lineup of speakers, and all startups, students, investors, faculty, and interested folks are welcome to attend. Marco Protano is a visiting professor of marketing, based in the US, who is in Edinburgh this week to teach the Business to Business marketing course. In this talk, Marco will provide insights into building your brand. For any entrepreneur, building your brand is key to business success – something that can be easily overlooked by more immediate concerns of financing and product development. No need to RSVP, just join in and find free wine/crisps afterward along with networking.
Lovely bunch of digital media, social media, and just generally fun folks chatting away and making new friends. The best way to start your Friday, and well worth the early arrival (you can trickle in 8-9am if that helps). It’s hard to get out of bed, but whenever I manage I’m always so happy I went!
