We present a free live screening of the British Library’s Inspiring Entrepreneurs event.

The Business & Intellectual Property Centre is pleased to be linking up with the British Library for their latest offering in their ‘Inspiring Entrepreneurs’ programme, the annual ‘Internet Icons’ event. This will be held at The Core – a fabulous business location at Science Central in the city centre.

British Library have, again, secured a great panel of digital entrepreneurs to take part in a live panel discussion, at British Library. This year we have:

Ella Woodward – ‘Deliciously Ella’

Aron Gelbard – ‘Bloom & Wild’

Sarah Wood – ‘Unruly’

Rupert Hunt – ‘SpareRoom’

As usual we will be holding our own event, prior to linking up with British Library for the live streaming .

The programme for the evening will be:

6.00pm – Registration, Refreshments and Networking

6.15pm – Welcome

6.20pm – Keynote Speaker – Jake Newport

His talk, “Stone Age lessons for business in the Digital Age” promises to be fun, interesting and educational and draws on his ‘previous life’ as a bushcraft instructor, primitive skills specialist and participant in a Stone Age living experiments. He applies the lessons learned from this unusual pursuit to running an e-commerce business and working for a digital agency.

7.00pm – Link-up with British Library for ‘Internet Icons’ live-screening

8.45pm (approx.) – Close

We will try to make the British Library screening as interactive as possible, with the opportunity to Tweet your questions for the panel in London. This promises to be a really entertaining and informative evening and a great opportunity to pick up some tips from top internet entrepreneurs.
