Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum


About the event

The Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum (OSEF) is a one-day conference, held annually at Oxford Saïd to promote entrepreneurship and innovation.

Hosted by the Entrepreneurship Centre, the flagship event brings together prominent entrepreneurs, innovators, business leaders and investors for a meaningful exploration of how individuals and businesses can transform the world.

The event is open to all, in order to promote dialogue, as well as convene students and professionals from the Oxford ecosystem and beyond. 

You can hear from keynote speakers telling their pioneering stories, be involved in panel discussions that kick off conversations about entrepreneurial trends, discover the coolest startups coming out of Oxford via the pitch competition and network with a host of exhibitors.

Whether you’re a startup, interested in how founders build ventures, want to make new connections, or are generally interested in entrepreneurship and innovation, there’s something for everyone.

The 2023 forum was held on 10 November at Saïd Business School. Discover what happened on our LinkedIn page. The latest information on OSEF 2024 will be released here once confirmed.
