There’s a new site in town to help startups get spotted, and we’re delighted to see The Student Market showcase products and services from student entrepreneurs. The project has been pioneered by one of our favourite student groups iCUE Business & Entrepreneurial Society, and we’re excited to go exhibit and support their launch event tomorrow night – everyone is welcome, join us and check out the student startup scene!
Launch Event: Thursday 18th November, 7:30-9:00pm, Appleton Tower Concourse
Open to startups, students, the curious, potential customers, and the wider business community – yes, everyone 🙂
Free with free wine and snacks too!
More juicy details from The Student Market team: The Student Market has been set up to give new business start-ups and those with existing products or services a chance to attract interest and make sales within a market that is both familiar and friendly.
We’ll promote new entrepreneurs within Edinburgh and create a community where buyers will opt to buy personal products on the Edinburgh Student Market website or at trade days rather than commercial entities.
The premise behind the student market is its personality. People won’t see a product; they will see a community and the people behind the products they are buying.
This will be spearheaded by a dedicated team of entrepreneurs who will develop an online community, give skills sessions, run large scale events and market on a daily basis around Edinburgh. The concept is to give new entrepreneurs the opportunity to appeal to a larger audience and make much needed sales without spending their own money.
