EntFest - COVID-19 Travel Update

As we are all aware the world is in an unprecedented situation with the global pandemic of COVID-19 and public health and the safety of our beneficiaries is the main priority of all of ours. Considering the recent government advice to avoid non-essential contact and public gatherings, and the recent communications around closures of schools and colleges, we have come to the incredibly difficult decision that it is no longer possible to stage EntFest this year, which was scheduled to take place on Friday 19th June, 2020.

 

#EntFest 2020 from the Peter Jones Foundation

Friday 19th June 2020 - University of Buckingham - Cancelled


EntFest is a unique celebration of enterprise and entrepreneurship, brought to you by the Peter Jones Foundation and hosted by the University of Buckingham.

This year, the festival heads outdoors, with festival tents hosting a full day of opportunities for your students to meet and learn from some of the UK’s best known entrepreneurs and business leaders in a vibrant environment different to that of their day-to-day school life.

The agenda will feature talks from key note speakers, panel debates, competitions and skills-based workshops, and of course the chance to see your students compete in the Dragon’s Den style final of their National Entrepreneur of the Year competition.

An ideal event to get your students career ready...
