Network of Experts
What is it?
The Network of Experts is an international network of expertise and knowledge, linking current degree programme students and alumni to successful entrepreneurs and professionals, both locally and globally.
Activities range from lunchtime talks and workshops with experts, to mentoring opportunities throughout the year. Students and alumni get useful insights and learnings from sector and industry experts, plus the opportunity to ask for startup advice.

What makes you an Expert?
If you have built a solid foundation of entrepreneurial experience, whether it's in one single sector or across a range of sectors, and are well-versed in representing products and services to consumers, other businesses, and governments here in the UK and worldwide, you could be just the kind of Expert we're looking for.
Why get involved?
Our Experts show passion and alignment to the Centre's vision and mission. They care about the entrepreneurial community and exhibit the desire to see potential entrepreneurs succeed. As an Expert with the Oxford Entrepreneurship Centre you will have the opportunity to:
- Be part of a vibrant and dynamic network, have direct access to Entrepreneurship Centre staff, Oxford Saïd faculty and leading entrepreneurs
- Contribute to shaping young entrepreneurs' future by providing guidance and advice on issues within your areas of expertise
- Be exposed to a large number of innovative start-ups, with a potential for professional relationships to grow, after the end of the programme
- Nurture your professional reputation around specific topics and issues
What is the commitment?
Our experts are required to commit pro bono on-campus involvement in active support of the Oxford Entrepreneurship Centre. Experts support the Centre in various ways depending on their expertise, interest and availability. Examples of activities include: 1 to 1 and/or group mentoring, delivering informal lectures and/or workshops, giving feedback as part of a panel or providing advice or guidance to students or Entrepreneurship Centre staff, where relevant.
