6 July 2017 - 11:37 am The Infinity School Podcast

As  a Year 10 student with a keen interest in becoming an entrepreneur, I look far and wide for any advice and tips to stand out. Good advice is often very hard to come by, especially when it is presented in an interesting way that really introduces you into into world of great business ideas whilst remain understandable and relevant. With such a long list of criteria, it is unlikely that all of these criteria will be ticked off, but to my surprise the University of Sheffield created a podcast that has all of that and more!

4 July 2017 - 2:22 pm Interviews and Afterviews (Work Experience Day 2)

Upon arriving on my second day I was again greeted with several warm greetings, which came to me as no surprise. Like yesterday several members of the office were absent, which was a terrible shame as I was planning to interview them, discussing everything from development of the internet to how they first got started. However due to the professionalism and brilliance showed by the team here, it was arranged that I would speak to two experienced members of the team.

27 October 2014 - 12:31 pm Fancy a trip to New York to ring the NASDAQ bell?

I can hardly contain myself. It seems like such a long time since we had a Startup Weekend in Sheffield. The last one was in March and the time has just flown by since then. Luckily for me, I got involved in plenty of startup stuff in Vegas in May and had the amazing opportunity to facilitate Startup Weekend: Art Edition in London at the beginning of this month. Combined with the monthly Startup in the Pub meetups and last month’s Entrepreneurs’ Pub, I’ve certainly been getting my startup fix. But nothing quite compares, does it, to the awesome nature of a full-on Startup Weekend Sheffield.

31 August 2014 - 10:53 am Sheffield is Startup City of the Month!

No really, this isn’t something I’ve just made up because I want it to be true. Online self-starter society and platform, Startacus, has named Sheffield ‘Startup City of the Month’ for September and they’re looking for content contributions from movers, shakers, meetup and event organisers, entrepreneurs, founders and entrepreneurial policy makers in Sheffield. What a great opportunity for us to show the world why they should be starting up in Sheffield! Continue reading “Sheffield is Startup City of the Month!” »

16 July 2014 - 10:54 am Money, money, money

Like most of us, start-ups always need more money. Whether that’s to invest back into the business to build its internal structures or to create brand awareness through advertising and marketing, start-ups tend to have a tough time making enough money to finance these ventures. So what’s out there for new companies? I went to two interesting workshops hosted by USE last week to find out a bit more of what was on offer to the fledgling start-ups of this world.

1 July 2014 - 10:50 am Tickling the career bone

I always felt robotic and dull to get up early in the morning, to shave, brush, suit up and board the tube for a job that although was very well paid, was nothing more than bland, uninteresting and not aligned to the aspirations I had as a student. But something changed and for the better. Continue reading “Tickling the career bone” »
