Midweek Mixers

From September 2017 the University of Essex business team will be inviting local businesses to join us at our Midweek Mixer, a monthly business networking event at Parkside Office Village, Knowledge Gateway, on our Colchester Campus. This is a great opportunity to unwind after work, from 5-6pm, over a drink and nibbles, and meet fellow small businesses based at Parkside Office Village and university staff.

For each session we invite a local business to present a five-minute talk, and we'll take a few minutes to tell you about some of the services we provide to help your business flourish. To find out more, and to register, please contact Veronica Anspach in our events team, email Please note places are limited.
