Entrepreneurship stories

The Meetups aim to connect a wider audience in Uppsala with the entrepreneurship
community in Uppsala. Provide young entrepreneurs the chance to be seen, market themselves and get feedback from professionals on their business ideas. Also hear inspirational stories from Uppsala entrepreneurs.

All meetups are planned online during the spring of 2021. It is our aim and hope that as soon as circumstances allows, we will have physical meetups, with audience and participants present in one venue.
