Anyone attending the Imagine: Make it Happen event next week in London needs to be aware of some important updates to the day’s arrangements, and what you need to do if you have already registered tickets for yourself and/or someone else. Previously the venue for the March 31st event was the Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel, but this has now changed, and we will be hosting the day at Microsoft’s London HQ at Cardinal Place.
Updated location and timings:
When: Tuesday 31st March 2015
Time: 9am – 5.30pm
Where: *New Venue* Microsoft UK, London HQ, Cardinal Place, 80-100 Victoria Street, London SW1E 5JL
For the consideration of your fellow start-ups and students, if for any reason, you are unable to attend, please cancel your registration (via the Eventbrite website) as there are many people wishing to attend. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
If you have registered for more than one ticket for this event, please ensure that you update your registration details and include the additional guests names & details (within the Eventbrite event website) you’re intending to bring along. Again, we thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Owing to the change in venue, we have also rearranged the structure of the day slightly to make this is an all-day event with both the morning and afternoon sessions merged together. If you have previously registered for a morning or afternoon session, you are now registered to attend for the full day. Of course, you are welcome to choose and attend the sessions that are relevant or convenient to you.
Registration opens at 9am. A light lunch will be served at 12.30pm. The event will conclude at 5.30pm.
Morning Start-Up Sessions (9.20 AM – 12.30 PM)
When you're starting up your business, you often don't know what you don't know. Our morning session is a series of power sessions that will answer some of the biggest 'how to' questions that start-ups have. It’s a taster accelerator compressed into a half day. Founder of SecretEscapes.com, Troy Collins, will keynote the morning session, sharing his lessons learned in building one of the UK’s hottest start-ups.
The 2015 UK Imagine Cup Finals (1.30 PM – 5.30 PM)
In the afternoon, Dave Coplin, published author and Chief Envisioning Officer for Microsoft UK will host the 2015 UK Imagine Cup Finals where you will see some top UK student pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.
You will be able to network with the UK Imagine Cup finalists from 4pm and join the announcement of the finals at 5pm. The event will conclude at 5.30pm.
So, if you are a tech start-up or a student and want a crash course on the key things you need to know to build and grow your business, be inspired by students with big ideas and network with likeminded, ambitious entrepreneurs, you won’t want to miss this event.
