[12 OCT 98] COVENTRY UNIVERSITY PRESS RELEASE
New Venture Fair '98 Showcases The New Entrepreneurs

Music via the Internet, new cosmetic products for the Afro-Caribbean market and a revolutionary range of safety products - just some of the innovative ideas that will be on display at Coventry University's New Venture Fair '98.

The Fair takes place at the TechnoCentre, Coventry University Technology Park, Parkside, on Wednesday 28 October, with 12 graduates from Coventry and other universities presenting their new business ideas based on invention, innovation and novel technological development.

Manager of Coventry University's Graduates into Business team Isabell Majewsky explains:

"These graduates are the fruit of our Graduate Enterprise Scheme and the Springboard business development programme which we have been running over the summer.

"This event is the first of what will be an annual event showcasing the work of young entrepreneurs who are developing their ideas through Graduates into Business", adds Isabell.

The Springboard project, giving advice on business law, patents and accounting for young entrepreneurs, attracted 250 applicants for just 20 places.

Those presenting at the New Venture Fair are the 'cream of the crop'.

"Following the presentations, visitors will be free to obtain further information about the new businesses from stands staffed by the entrepreneurs themselves, who will be happy to answer any questions. It really will be an exciting event, and a 'must see' for anyone who wants to see what the competition of tomorrow is going to be", concludes Isabell.

Exhibitors include:

Scott Crowther of Earlsdon, Coventry and Mark Freeth of Rowington, near Warwick - S&M Records - music via the Internet

Adrian Rye of Coundon, Coventry - Squid Software - production control technology for small and medium enterprises (SMEs)

Mick Rutter of Earlsdon and Sam Tate of Stoke, Coventry - Runner and prue - a range of revolutionary safety products
