We're now a month away from one of our flagship events Student Enterprise Conference 2018, which will be hosted by one of our long-standing members Aston University on the weekend 17th - 18th February 2018. Here, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce Mariya Akhatar, President of Aston Entrepreneurs, who shared with us her excitement to be involved in the conference.
How excited are you that the Student Enterprise Conference 2018 is being hosted by Aston University?
Super excited! It is a huge privilege to have Aston chosen as the host of the conference this year. As a university, innovation is at the heart of our values, so being able to host the Enterprise conference which encapsulates this is sure to be a fantastic experience.
What are you most looking forward to over the weekend?
I’m looking forward to the diverse range of speakers attending and being able to hear their stories on how they pursued their entrepreneurial vision. I’m also looking forward to meeting all the students from across the UK who attend the conference!
What could Aston Entrepreneurs bring to the conference?
Aston Entrepreneurs truly embodies the ethos of NACUE. We would bring our passion, creativity and dedication!
What is the joy of being a President of Aston Entrepreneurs? And, challenges?
The joy of being President is most definitely being around like minded students who think as visionaries. Furthermore, being able to host events which are truly beneficial to our members is hugely rewarding! However, one of the main challenges is making sure that all the last minute preparations come together so that the event runs swimmingly!
What's next for Aston Entrepreneurs?
Within the coming year, we aim to be bigger and better than ever by expanding our network and cultivating creativity. Watch this space!
