Our enterprise and entrepreneurship programme aims to equip students and graduates with the skills to develop an entrepreneurs' mind-set, either to enable them to set up their own business or simply to use those entrepreneurial skills as they embark on their career path. This includes a Dragon's Den style competition, specialist 1:1 support and access to the Young Chamber of Commerce. Launchpad offers specially designed workshops on funding opportunities, marketing and business planning. Students and alumni can access events, appointments and gain support with writing applications and business plans.
