Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Following discussions with our collaborators SevenHills today, it is with much regret that we have made the difficult decision to postpone GradVenture 2019/2020 until further notice based on government advice with regards to COVID-19 virus.
Our priority is the safety of our students and guests, and a gathering of this size may jeopardise global containment efforts and put attendees at risk of exposure or quarantine. We share any disappointment you may have with this news, however we hope to be in touch soon with a revised date so we can look forward to the event.
We celebrate all the inspiring entrepreneurial teams who have taken part in the competition so far, participating at our Goldsmiths University of London 'Creative Strand' and Queen Mary, University of London 'Social Purpose Strand' semi-finals. We congratulate all members of our 8 Finalist teams: Meg Zeenat and Damian Zabielski (My Mind Matters Too); Sophia (Eleni Sophia) (Perspective Press Global); Kate Mulligan and Supa Chantschool [Rest Space]; Liam Connor and Connie Janes (Sporting Fundamentals); Yamin Miah (Bubble mind); Joey Li and Thuta Khin (Leiho); Vishal Kumar, Vikas Kumar and Liam Donovan (Photogram AI) and Yiran Qin (Nummy).
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you understand.
