Another year of Uni is underway! What better way to start the year with something inspirational, from someone inspirational?
Shazam, the mobile music recognition app, would not have been as successful as it is now, if it were not for one guy, who saw what they were doing, had faith in them, and of course gave them loads of cash to get started – Chris Smart, founder and general partner at Acacia Capital Partners (Capital Investing firm) gave Shazam the boost they needed, just like they have done for countless other startups, and look at them now!
Guess what!? Chris has agreed to come to ARU to welcome you back, in person! Do not miss this opportunity to meet this down to earth guy.
We also have the incredibly busy Taus Nӧhrlind, who is the Chairman of the Institute of Directors Cambridgeshire branch, who are one of our primary supporters and partners. If you do not know what the Institute of Directors is, then Taus will get you up to speed. Taus helped many startups, small and medium businesses find the money they need to get going, from hand crafted decorative ornaments to huge eco friendly power plants. Taus is adept at networking, and is probably the key element to his success, apart from knowledge, skills and a tenacious attitude. The Institute of Directors is the perfect vehicle for networking with high profile individuals and organisations, and Taus will be here to tell you all about it.
The IoD also have a very Student specific initiative (for our student members), to make it that much easier and affordable to network, receive mentoring, and give yourself a huge upper hand in your career! Attend the Welcome Event to find out more!
