Startup Stories

Gather round the campfire…

Start-up Stories is a series of story-telling events where alumni entrepreneurs share their learning journeys with aspiring students.

There’s nothing more powerful than hearing an authentic account of someone’s experiences, especially when that person was in your shoes just a few years ago.

This is a chance to speak to former students from Lancaster who have taken the plunge and started their own business, as well as new peers who may become future business partners.  There’s lots to unlock at each event, and a chance to network in a safe environment.

And to make each event extra special, as each alumni guest describes the rollercoaster ride of starting a business – the highs and the lows, the successes and failures – our team of live illustrators capture the story on canvas, immortalised in glorious low-technicolour!
