BATTLE OF THE COLLEGES
Battle of the College is an entrepreneurial event devised to make use of the Xing game involving a Dragons’ Den panel. Each college will field one (or more) teams of six students to compete on their behalf. The initial afternoon workshop will commence on 15th November and anyone interested let
in the College Office know initially and then sign up at http://battleofthecolleges.eventbrite.com . The first session includes a FREE LUNCH, a training session to learn about elements of a business plan, a chance to look at the Zing tool and a Dragons Den presentation with members of CEEC. The first 6 to sign up will receive a FREE Lonsdale Hoodie in choice of your colour.. You don’t have to be a Management School undergraduate to do well…last year’s winning team were from all disciplines (Law and Theatre Studies students do very well). The Battle of the Colleges will take place in March 2012 where a College Team will be chosen to represent the University at a national Flux event which takes place during the Easter vacation. Participation in a the College team will count towards your Lancaster Award. If you can’t make the session on the 15th November it doesn’t mean that you can’t enter the competition in March…just let Juli know of your interest.
