Inspiring and Demystifying the Future of Tomorrow
As one of the University of Leeds' most active societies, our mission is to provide the next generation of entrepreneurs the energy and direction to fulfil their potential through industry advice, international expert talks and fierce competitions.
Who are we?
We're a rag tag group with insatiable energy and an exorbitant number ideas who love sharing those ideas with all! From budding entrepreneurs to seasoned CEOs we're here to get you to create!
What do we do?
Throughout the year we run a wide range of events to enable our members to develop their skills, from business law workshops and accounting advice to motivational talks and pitching competitions. We also hold stress-busting socials to remind you all that it's work hard, play hard!
We love to unite enterprising students from all departments and see ideas come to life, but we're also passionate about making a positive impact beyond campus by building lasting relationships with organisations and charities.
We’re looking for help!
On the 7th of March, we’ll be running our conference: ‘Times of Disruption: Opportunities and Challenges for Entrepreneurs”. The conference starts at 10.00 and finishes at 16.00, followed by informal networking. There are five volunteering teams, the descriptions for which you can find in the link below.
Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to gain experience for your CV as well as for developing new skills. You will be working at the organisation side of the event that gives you the advantage to be in charge of such an event next year. You will also receive a free entry to the conference.
Applications need to be completed by 22.00 on Tuesday 19th February to be accepted.
If you have any questions about any of the roles or the conference itself, then please do not hesitate to send them to the above email or contact us on Facebook.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you,
Leeds Entrepreneurs Committee
