Next Upstarts Club™ – Plymouth – Thursday May 6th 2010

We are delighted to announce that the next Upstarts Club™ will be hosted by Marjon on Thursday May 6th 2010.

The Upstarts Club™ is open to would-be, new and experienced entrepreneurs who want the chance to chat informally about developing new businesses.  For the ‘newbies’ you have the chance to learn from the real-life experiences of our established entrepreneurs – and those of us who have “been there and done that” we always enjoy getting to hear new ideas!

The Upstarts Club™ is a hosted networking event which means attendees get introduced to the contacts they need and learn quickly from the tips and ideas on offer.  Unlike most networks, the Upstarts Club™ concentrates on sharing knowledge by introducing novices and start ups to established business people and business support specialists who can make a practical difference to a business idea.

Thanks to our hosts Marjon, the Upstarts Club™ is free of charge to attend but we do need to know you’re coming, so we can make sure the catering has enough to go round (yes, we’ll even feed and water you too!).  You can book your place by contacting either Sue Windley (PPG’s Marketing Director and Founder of the Upstarts Club™) or Nicky Primavesi (President of Marjon’s Student Union).

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.

Sue Windley, co-designer of the Entrepreneurs Bootcamp™, said: “This is truly an amazing venue and when I first saw it, I knew it was the perfect place to become the creative hub and HQ for our would-be entrepreneurs in the 2009 Entrepreneurs Bootcamp™. You can’t help but be creative here, so I know it will give our new business ideas a huge boost to finding success.”
