The next Upstarts Club™ on 6th May will have a twist! As part of the ‘real life’ hosted networking event (where would-be entrepreneurs meet up with experienced business people who are delighted to share their highs (and lows!) of how they got to their levels of success), organiser and architects of the Upstarts Club™ Sue Windley is hoping to create a virtual community of support as well. “As someone who has discovered the benefits of linking with other business people through Twitter and LinkedIn, I want to demonstrate what a great resource social media can be to start-up and would-be entrepreneurs. The focus of the Upstarts Club™ is to share real-life knowledge that can make a practical difference to a business idea, and the obvious next route is to go on-line. So as well as the meet-up at Marjon, I will be opening up the ‘virtual floor’ for sharing ideas and experiences.”
Between 6.00 and 9.00pm (UK time) on Thursday 6th May, to take part in the Upstarts Club™ virtually, simply use the hashtag #UpstartsClub to get linked up to a brilliant on-line business resource for business ‘newbies’ to learn from the real-life experiences of established entrepreneurs.
In addition, if you are thinking of starting up a new business, you can hook into the more interactive ideas, hints and tips of entrepreneurship by joining the virtual Upstarts Club™ groups on FaceBook and LinkedIn. Alternatively you can find out more about the people behind the Upstarts Club™ on the PPG website.
