LET'S GET SOCIAL

Join us for our regular Monthly Entrepreneurs Meetup where we invite current BSEEN businesses, alumni, mentors & more to get together at a different location each month.

One of the main attractions of BSEEN Meet-Ups - apart from the food - is the opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs.

This month we are joined by a few of the resident businesses and the founder from @hockleysocialclub! 🥨🍦🍻🍛🍔 Free food for the first 40 people to arrive!

Founded in 2012, they are one of the UK’s leading operators of street food venues and events. With over 450 events planned in 2021, 70 street food caterers supported and over 350,000 visitors through the doors, they are a champion and a platform for independent businesses and freelancers to thrive.

Come along if you'd like to:

🍟 Grow your network of connections in Birmingham - new partners, customers, referrers, suppliers etc!

🍟 Learn from other early stage entrepreneurs - share challenges and ideas to overcome them, enjoy guest speakers

🍟 Catch up with people you met at the bootcamp, the BSEEN team & more

If you're a current student at a Birmingham University and would like to find out more about BSEEN, you're also very welcome!
