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. A major stream of the programme is to support those with dyslexia and other neurodiverse conditions. Other streams include a Dragon's Den style competition, specialist mentoring and access to the Young Chamber of Commerce. Launchpad offers specially designed workshops on self-esteem, marketing, memory techniques and business planning and students and alumni can access events, entrepreneur mentors, and gain support with writing CVs and business plans.
