Following the successful launch of Bath Spa University‘s (BSU) Business Network back in November, it’s up and raring to go again with its second business networking event on April 20 at the university’s Newton Park campus.
Open to all businesses both large and small, the network was launched to encourage and support collaborative working within the South West business community.
“The event provides an excellent presentation of how the university helps students and businesses work together”
As well as offering local businesses a chance to meet and mingle, the event will also showcase some of the ways in which businesses can benefit from the university – including funding streams that are available for research and consultancy, and information on how businesses can raise their profile with Bath Spa University students and staff.
Business Network perks
As part of April’s event, the BSU Business Network is also offering a free social media marketing taster session in addition to a campus tour of Bath Spa University and some of its newest facilities – some of which are now available for hire.
Attendees from the network’s first event back in November were positive about the connections they made. One attendee explained: “The event provides an excellent presentation of how the university helps students and businesses work together. It was a really great introduction.”
Another attendee added: “I realised that it might not be as difficult as I thought to work with an aspiring student”.
