The upcoming week is global entrepreneurship week and is celebrated around the world among all innovators and entrepreneurs. Telfer is taking part in this week by prompting entrepreneurship culture within the University of Ottawa from November 13th to the 19th.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the most out of Global Entrepreneurship Week:
1. Know the week’s activities:
It’s a good idea to get to know the schedule of the entire week to determine which events will be the most beneficial to you, as there is a lot going on. This will ensure you make it to the events that you would like to attend, without arriving late or completely missing it.
2. Get educated:
Even though, there will be a lot of information coming your way throughout the week from guest speakers to workshops, you should most definitely do some research before going to the events. I suggest you do some research to learn the background history about the guest speakers, learn about the different start-ups, and the events that will be held throughout the week. This will ensure that you go in prepared and will allow you to know what questions to ask, making the events more beneficial to you!
3. Be prepared to network:
With any networking events, you need to be prepared to network! One tip to use when networking is to learn to listen. The speakers are there to share their experiences and give you tips to help you become future entrepreneurs, so be ready to be all ears. One of the events that will be held during the week that will allow you to put your networking skills to the test is the Startup Career Fair taking place on Tuesday, November 14th. This event will consist of many start-ups within Ottawa and give you the opportunity to familiarize yourself with what options are available for you.
With these tips and tricks, you are all now ready to make the most out of the upcoming week!
