On June 11th 2014 Startup Career Launchpad headed to Kingston University Penrhyn Road Campus. 76 students came to speak to 15 Startups. The purpose of this event was to connect Startup businesses with students who are interested in working for a growing business. Exhibitors offered information about their company and students could apply to work with them on a permanent or short term basis.
Students also had the chance to hear from speakers who shared their challenges, successes and their stories on becoming entrepreneurs. They all reiterated how important passion is to success and expanding their business.
