NUOVO was named as last month’s Society of the Month.
Their society president, said: “WOW, what a month February has been. Our membership is going from strength to strength with over 55 members and we are recruiting new members almost every week! We have also managed to grow our Facebook group to over 150 people, focusing on building up the society ready for a fantastic 2017/2018.
“We will shortly be launching our new marketing campaign, to be placed on plasma screens and in print! We have started with a Collaboration Bang this semester, with a great social event for both our NUOVO Members and the team from Newcastle Entrepreneurs at Newcastle University. This has led to a welcome return of sponsorship from Innocent Drinks and workshop events,
“Can we just say a big thank you to Northumbria Students Union for the grant money that has allowed us to send 10 society members to the City Wide, Newcastle Start-Up Week in May, your support is vital to get our teams out and about into the wider Start-up business community.
“We’ve been getting busy, out and about as a society this month, with a trip to the cinema, to see Founders, (the true story behind the building of MacDonald’s into a global empire)! along with a Networking event at Campus North, and a tour of their fantastic facility, and we have even brought in a Guest Speaker to deliver a branding and marketing workshop for our members, in one of our two workshops this month! We are also endorsing one of our own Committee members in the NSU Elections, Karl Robson for VP Education – more on this as it unfolds! We have now been awarded the Bronze Recognition Scheme, so as a society, now we’re heading for Silver. WOW as I said such a busy month, and lots, lots more to come!”
Well done to the NUOVO Society!
