Get Rich from Research: Postgraduate Workshop

Date: 13th June

Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Location: Science Building Foyer, Room 303-G14

With our friends at the Postgraduate Students Association, we’re proud to bring you our first workshop tailored just for postgraduate students. If you’re a research student with an interesting project that might lead into a product or business, or if you’re just curious about the world outside of academia, this is for you! Our speakers from the Return on Science Investment Committees and UniServices will lead you through the business model canvas, then you’ll get the chance to develop your very own business plan. If you don’t have an idea yet, no worries - we’ll set you up with something.

Plus there'll be food, drinks, spot prizes and a chance to mingle with your fellow postgrads.

Undergraduates, don’t worry - we have a workshop just for you coming up in August.
