The details of the June dinner are as follows:

Tour of the UEL SportsDock which is the main space the US Olympic Ctte will use whilst they stay in the UK during the Olympic Games and the Business Innovation Centre for Knowledge Dock.

The facilities and resources available at the Petchey Centre for Entrepreneurship have helped Knowledge Dock, the University of East London’s enterprise development service, to achieve the prestigious status of Business Innovation Centre (BIC), accredited by the European Business Network (EBN).

One of only twelve in the UK and 160 throughout Europe, our Business Innovation Centre has now become part of a European-wide network of 160 BICs, across 21 European countries.

The European BIC Network provides a gateway for local businesses to make international connections and will open up opportunities for extra funding within our area. It is the ultimate objective for all BIC members to stimulate and support the creation of new companies, new projects and new jobs in the EU and the European Economic Area.

Followed by dinner at Yi-Ban (Chinese) – Postcode E16 2QT.
