Find Your Startup Idea Workshop: Blackboard Collaborate

Wednesday, 20 February, 2019 - 16:00 to 18:00
Blackboard Learn Off Campus

This event is available to: , .

Edinburgh Innovations has been running the Find Your Startup Idea Workshop in person for over two years, and is now experimenting with bringing the workshop into an online collaborative environment while trying to maintain the feel of a hands-on, group participation-oriented workshop. 

If you're interested in becoming an entrepreneur, but do not have an idea to work on just now, then this two hour workshop is perfect for you! 

We'll look at how using different brainstorming tools helps the ideas generation process and how you can benefit by using them, then we'll introduce you to some further steps to hone your idea and begin developing your 'pitch'!

Two £50 Amazon vouchers to help you move your idea forward will be given out to participants with great ideas who participate actively and respectfully.


You will also get the chance to learn how LAUNCH.ed, the student-facing team in the Enterprise Services department at Edinburgh Innovations Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Edinburgh) supports budding entrepreneurs. EI Enterprise Services are available to all staff, students, and recent alumni (two years) of the University of Edinburgh.


After you sign up for this workshop, you will be sent a link to join the course on Blackboard Learn. Forums will open up before the event, so please feel free to pop in to have some discussion leading up to the event. The Blackboard Collaborate space will be available from 3:30pm - 6:00pm on Wednesday, February 20th. Please ensure that you have access to a stable internet connection with speakers and/or headphones, and a microphone should you choose to use it (not necessary)
