We at ABVenture Zone believe that networking lies at the heart of a successful, growing business. It enables you to exchange ideas, gain insights and new perspectives and establish a web support. While the business world is highly competitive, there’s loads and loads of support, mentoring and advice available – especially if you’re a student entrepreneur.
We have a few events in store for you in February and we really recommend you check them out:
15th February, 14:00 // Marcus Thompson from the Aberdeen University Business School will be running a seminar on venture marketing here in ABVenture Zone, on the 8th floor of the Macrobert Building. The seminar is open to everyone and may be particularly useful for those who are at the branding stage and want to reach out to more customers. The focus of the seminar will be on how to put together a marketing strategy and marketing plan for your business.
22nd February, 14:00 // Anne Fraser, Royal Society of Edinburgh’s (RSE) Awards Manager, will host an information briefing on the RSE Enterprise Fellowship, for which applications are now open. It will also take place in ABVenture Zone and complimentary refreshments will be provided.
This session will explain the background and success of the Enterprise Fellowship Programme, outline the entrepreneurial support provided and provide information on the application process.

22nd February, 17:30 // If you want to see what the connection between penguins, hospitals & sausages could be, this MBA Connect seminar could be perfect for you. It will be all about business model innovation and a fantastic opportunity to learn about developing a successful business model in varying contexts. It’ll take place at the Sir Duncan Rice Library and complimentary refreshments will be provided. The seminar will enable you to be part of an ‘interactive safari’ and thought experiment, and will be a great evening to network, share experiences, and hear from an industry expert – Steve Harrison from Scottish Enterprise.
