The value of networks for entrepreneurs
Networking is possibly one of the most important skills for entrepreneurs and is one which you have the opportunity to practice on programmes such as Enterprise Tuesday.
Networking involves building and maintaining contacts and relationships with other people. The personal networks which you accumulate over time, both socially and professionally can be an invaluable resource. This applies whether you are an entrepreneur looking to start and grow your own new venture, whether you are looking for a job, or working on a project where external ideas and input can help. For entrepreneurs, a contact made at a purely social event may ultimately help to provide you with one of the key ingredients for the start of the business.
