As part of Global Entrepreneurship week 2012, Aston Business School held an ideas workshop ‘From inspiration to application - making that idea work’. This event was delivered by the founders of Think Share Create Aston MBA Simon Hague and Ian Harrison. Think Share Create is an online ideas incubator, a fast growing, diverse community of people, turning ideas into real-life ventures. The outcome of which is the potential development of viable business, charitable or social enterprise propositions.
The event was hosted in the Aston Business School MBA lounge and attracted a range of attendees, including Final year undergraduate students, postgraduates, alumni and staff. Participants of the event were put into groups with people they may have never met before and encouraged to all talk, take part and come up with creative business ideas which they developed over the course of the workshop and then had to pitch to the other groups.
The session was fun and interactive and engaged the participants who came up with some fantastic ideas and how they could market them. After the workshop had finished there was an opportunity for participants to speak with both Simon and Ian and ask questions or for advice and tips on any business ideas they have.
The event was a real success Simon Hague said “Tremendous events at Aston Uni yesterday. Amazing young minds playing with ideas and developing them into new businesses”
Simon and Ian also delivered their ideas workshop to 60 sixth form students during the afternoon 15 November 2012.
