The Oxford Mail: Business delegates and entrepreneurs arrive at Venturefest in Oxford
The Oxford Mail recently published the following article about Venturefest 2016: More than 1,000 business delegates have been arriving at Venturefest this morning, a showcase for innovation and hi-tech entrepreneurship. This year's event, the 18th, is the biggest yet, and it is being held for the first time at the King's Centre in Osney Mead, West Oxford, after switching from the Said Business School. aventure.jpg.gallery Lord Willetts, former minister for universities and science, will chair a panel this afternoon on the implications of Brexit. Venturefest executive chairwoman Lynn Shepherd said:
Businesses have to be innovative and turn Brexit into an opportunity. Oxfordshire itself voted overwhelmingly to remain so the result of the referendum has come as a shock to the business community.  Venturefest is a good opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs to meet and talk and try to find new opportunities because they are resilient and flexible. Businesses need to be pro-active and keep the conversations going with each other.
