Three things we can’t resist: Dragons’ Den, ice cream and a bit of friendly competition. On Saturday November 26th, we will be joined by DRAGONS’ DEN STAR, YEE KWAN CHAN, who received investment in her ice cream business, Yee Kwan Ice Cream, from Deborah Meaden on the show. She will be introducing a real-world business challenge for you to tackle in teams and will judge your ideas at the end of the day.
You do not need any specific business knowledge or entrepreneurial experience, as help will be on hand.
We expect the majority of people won’t enter as a team but if you want to form a group of 5-6 people before the event, message the Sheffield Entrepreneurs’ Society Facebook page with all of your names.
This event is a collaboration between the Sheffield Entrepreneurs’ Society and the Women in Business Society. The ticket price for society members is £1, or £2 for non-members. All attendees must be members of the University of Sheffield Students’ Union.
