The University of Cambridge will be celebrating the official opening of the Cambridge Entrepreneurship Centre this Friday (23rd March) at 6pm.
An official opening for Cambridge entrepreneurs
The venture capitalist and one of Cambridge Network's founders, Dr Hermann Hauser of Amadeus Capital Partners, will be unveiling the plaque to commemorate the opening in a private ceremony at the centre.
In attendance will be the Vice Chancellor, Sir Alec Broers, Professor Sandra Dawson, Director of the Judge Institute and local entrepreneurs.
This will be followed by a gala reception in the spectacular surroundings of the Judge Institute of Management.
Two hundred guests, including CEOs from major corporations and the local hi-tech community, will attend the reception to hear speeches and discuss the future of entrepreneurship in the area.
The CEC was established just over a year ago with seed funding from the government. It has become an integral part of the entrepreneurship community in Cambridge and the East of England.
The Centre has developed a wide range of educational programmes for the academic and business community including Summer schools for entrepreneurs, online programmes and specialist courses for community enterprises.
In the area of research, the CEC's activities are divided into reviewing and disseminating best practice for supporting entrepreneurs, building a virtual library of entrepreneurship related resources and monitoring the performance of new ventures in the Cambridge area.
Their work has not gone unnoticed, Weather Informatics, the recent winners of a 50k business plan competition for new start ups, praised the University 'for having the vision to promote entrepreneurship.'
