Apply to run a local branch of CAMentrepreneurs

This form is for people who want to run a CAMentrepreneurs branch. Before you start to fill in this form you should read the *Values* and *Starting a new branch* documents.
Our goals, purpose and values
How to set up a local branch
These documents are also listed in the "files" section of our Facebook Group here

The basic values of CAMentrepreneurs are set out in these documents..

We want to organise high quality events, add value and be useful.

In places where there is a thriving entrepreneurship support eco-system and/or a local alumni chapter this may well be in partnership with existing organisations. We encourage you to try a pilot event. As you will see in our "Starting a new branch*" guide - the first step is to understand the local entrepreneurship support eco system in your area.

Our official presence is here

on Facebook
we have a Facebook Group here
and on Linkedin

We may set up our own website in the future, but for now, effectively we use Linkedin and Facebook

This group is for entrepreneurial alumni who have started a business (and/or want to) and would like to

a) help students

b) network with other alumni.

c) otherwise get involved

I wrote a manifesto for the group here

which gives a sense of my perspective.

I believe there is a big issue of alumni not being as actively engaged as they could be in the places they studied.

This applies to many places not just Cambridge.

The time has come for change, in which Cambridge can play a leading role.

If you don't keep with the rules, we reserve the right to remove you from the Linkedin and Facebook Group - but of course we hope that this will never happen.
