BGU to host international entrepreneurship conference next week

This story is over

Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) are set to host the fourth ‘Team 4 Learning’ event, an international conference dedicated to fostering and supporting young entrepreneurs.

Taking place over February 8 and 9 at BGU, the ‘Team 4 Learning’ conference is a collaborative event for existing and budding entrepreneurs. Attendees will have the opportunity to make international connections along with discovering new ways of developing both their skills and their businesses.

Speakers at the event include guests from Finland and Australia, along with local entrepreneurs and representatives from the TEDx programme. A range of networking events in addition to tours of Lincoln will also be available to delegates.

The entire event has been designed and project-managed by students from the BA (Hons) Business (Team Entrepreneurship) programme who attended the previous conference, held in the Finnish city of Jyvaskyla, the birth place of the Team Academy Initiative last year.

Chris Sandham, Project Lead for the conference, said: “I am extremely proud to be leading and organising such a huge international event, and can’t wait to see it come to fruition.

“With the help of my project team, I think we have designed a programme that will provide all of our guests with an excellent learning and social experience, and I am personally really excited to network with such a diverse group of entrepreneurs and coaches.”

Dr Elinor Vettraino, Head Coach and Programme Leader for Business and Enterprise at BGU, described her excitement at bringing the conference to BGU: “It is an immense privilege to be hosting this year’s Team 4 Learning conference.

“Since launching our Team Entrepreneurship course we’ve seen a wealth of fantastic enterprising students grow and develop at BGU. To now have the opportunity to bring those students to an international audience is an exciting prospect”

The conference is open to commercial businesses as well as entrepreneurs. You can find a full event programme and information on how to book your place at this exciting conference at the official conference website.
