The Venture bus is coming...
Posted on 06/03/2017
King’s College London’s Entrepreneurship Institute are taking students on the road to introduce them to entrepreneurship.
The UK’s first student ‘Venture crawl’ will take 30 students on a London Routemaster for a 12 hour bespoke tour of some of London’s most innovative companies and workspaces.
The ‘Venture Bus’ route takes in a range of companies, from smaller Startups at Wayra, MassChallenge and Geovation, to the multinational Facebook and Accenture’s Innovation Centre.
The students, who come from across King’s and are a range of ages, backgrounds and nationalities, will be given unique access to the spaces and take part in activities and talks designed to get them to think creatively, be inspired by industry leaders, and get feedback about their early-stage Start-up ideas.
VIP passengers who’ll be hopping on board the bus throughout the journey include cybersecurity expert and former LulzSec hacker, Mustafa Al-Basam, and speakers who'll be inspiring students throughout the day include leading businessman and philanthropist Prof Stefan Allesch-Taylor CBE.
Learning Programme Manager, Jeremy Shorter said:
“The best way to learn about entrepreneurship and innovative thinking is to experience it first-hand; to meet the people who are creating new jobs and coming up with creative ways to meet society’s challenges. King’s is in the heart of London, with the world’s top innovators right on our doorstep so we want to take full advantage of that.
Our students are the business leaders and innovators of the future and travelling on the bus gives them the opportunity to interact with each other and exchange ideas as we take them on this unique entrepreneurial journey.”
The Venture Bus departs on Tuesday 7 March 8.30am.
