Setting up Your Own Business

Enterprise Development Hub

Our Enterprise Development Hub, situated in the Business School, is dedicated to nurturing innovative student ideas. We offer 1-1 mentoring and workshops for starting or growing your own business and an annual Entrepreneurship Week full of events to put you in direct contact with successful alumni and other entrepreneurs.

Many of the skills the Hub helps to develop also enhance the employability prospects of those wishing to be employed by large corporations, SMEs or the third sector.

Throughout the academic year the Hub also runs a series of workshops, seminars and mentoring sessions. These equip those wishing to start their own venture or earn a living as a freelancer, consultant, contractor or sole trader with the knowledge, tools and confidence to take the next step.

Workshops & Seminars

Our core workshops cover a wide range of topics including, innovation, business planning, the basics of business and networking. Through our networks we also offer seminars on special areas such as e-commerce, social and eco-enterprise.
