On 8 December, Westminster Business School will host an event entitled, ‘How to build a tech start-up from concept to market’, providing anyone with an interest in entrepreneurship and technology a chance to gain an understanding of how to build a tech-start up from scratch.

The event is free of charge and involves a two-hour workshop, followed by interactive step-by-step guidance on how to construct a technology-based start-up business from concept to market. Those who have already founded and are looking to grow their companies are also welcome to attend.

Based on real-life businesses and case studies, the event will be delivered by professionals who have successfully implemented ideas into the world of technology, and those who collaborate with the Higher Education sector to mentor young entrepreneurs by incorporating practicality into their learning paths. Attendees of this event will be guided through the constructive steps required to bring a digital idea to the public, such as an app, website or other technological solution.

This workshop is co-hosted by Dr Luca Cacciolatti, Reader in Marketing at Westminster Business School, in collaboration with Slava Baranovskiy and Dennis G. Lucan, co-founders of the Marylebone Entrepreneurial Club and Alumni of the University of Westminster. The event is also supported by The Institute of Directors and includes a networking session powered by Arro Coffee, allowing guests to meet like-minded entrepreneurs and other start-up founders.

Dr Luca Cacciolatti said: “I am proud of the way the MSc Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Enterprise Development inspires students to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. I am also happy to be supported by capable young entrepreneurs from the Marylebone Entrepreneurial Club, who add practical relevance to our academic activities.”

The event will run from 1:30pm to 6pm, and is limited to only 300 spaces. Please note that tickets are distributed on a first come, first served basis. All guests will receive an official Certificate of Attendance following the event.
