****Rajeeb Dey – CEO, Enternships
Liveblog of a talk at Like Minds Exeter 2012
Rajeeb graduated in 2008, the year Lehman went down, and, despite some great job offers, he decided to set up in business on his own.
His company is Enternships; the aim is giving working in a startup the same kudos as working in a large organisation as an intern.

There is hope: there are a lot of bodies out there.
Entrepreneurship is jumping off a cliff and building a parachute on the way down. Are you ready to jump?
