Armed Forces Day

26 June 2018

Exeter – heropreneurs Armed Forces Entrepreneurship Event

When
6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Location
Southernhay W
Exeter EX1 1RS
UK

Come and join heropreneurs and hear the tale of how the team at Victor Mobility are making a better wheelchair.

This event will be of value to anyone in the armed forces community who is interested in setting up or growing their own business & those allies who wish to work with and support them. In addition to the talk there will be plenty of time for networking.

Free access to members of the ‘Armed Forces Family’ – Serving personnel, Veterans, Cadets and their Families, please email team@heropreneurs.co.uk.

Phil Eaglesham is leading his team to build an innovative mobility device that will give confidence and independence to users.

Phil contracted Q Fever (Helmand Fever) during active service as a Royal Marine Commando in Afghanistan. As a result, he relies on wheelchairs and similar devices for his mobility. He has raised over £800k thus far to develop a working prototype with the Advanced Manufacturing Centre, Sheffield. In his spare time he’s a Paralympian.

Stephens Scown are kindly sponsoring the evening so all ticket sales (to non Armed Forces Families) will go to the charity.
