Tuesday, 9th February: The Power of an Advisory Board, 6:30-8pm at Lecture Theatre 1, UofE Business School, 7 Bristo Sq

Bill Joos, Principal of “Go To Market Consulting” and known by many as the Pitch Doctor, is back for his annual visit to E-Club. This time he’s here to tell us why the Board of Advisors is an entrepreneur’s most underutilized tool! In addition to talking about how to form, select and leverage your Advisory Board, Bill will contrast the differences between that and the corporate Board of Directors. No need to RSVP, just turn up and catch wine and crisps at 8pm afterward. This week sees the adoption of Bloop to help with mingling, so that will be exciting too.

Global Entrepreneurship Week, oh my! So the free drinks are where?According to the forces of the universe, this week is Global Entrepreneurship Week! As it was very aptly put to me yesterday, ‘I have no idea why a gloomy week in November is supposed to incite entrepreneurship…’ but we’ll run with it for now. There’s a real mix of things to choose from this week, whether you’re in the mood for a reception, workshops, meetups, or award ceremonies. In the Entrepreneurship Week spirit, we’ll be kicking off some new features here at StartupCafe as well.

ERI 40th Anniversary Reception: Monday 16th Nov, 11am-1pm at Playfair Library

Edinburgh Research & Innovation, the university’s research and commercialisation (technology transfer) office, celebrates 40 years of exciting activity. Achievements in that time include developing the first genetically engineered vaccine against Hepatitis B, creating the Smart Wheelchair for children with severe disabilities, and pioneering the use of amniocentesis in pregnancy to detect birth defects. The party features an exhibition of the commercialisation highlights and I’m hoping there will be some free food/drinks as well. It’s open to all University of Edinburgh staff and students, and you do not need to register.
