Open and extracurricular programmes

For Oxford University students and staff

Our programmes give participants the insight and knowledge to deal with the realities of venture creation. Activities include:

  • Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum (OSEF): the School's flagship entrepreneurial event, designed to be an intensive and immersive experience for students interested in all things entrepreneurial – from pursuing startup ideas to taking a transformational approach to building their future careers. Past keynote speakers have included Biz Stone, Co-Founder of Twitter, and Phil Libin, Co-Founder of Evernote. Whether you’re interested in starting and scaling a business, developing your skill-set to stand out from the crowd or simply understanding the opportunities that can come your way when you think entrepreneurially, OSEF can provide a hugely inspirational, stimulating and unmissable day.
