We saw the need in Universities for private sector input into nurturing and developing Student entrepreneurial growth. Combining our skills, resources and experience we have created UniPreneurs UK for all Students, Staff and Alumni to access.
We encourage students with a viable business concept to invite at least one other Student Co-Founder with complimenting skills and resources to join them. We encourage Universities to accept an equity stake in new Student enterprise in exchange for support, market validation, access to alumni, facilities and University resources where required. The benefits for Students and Universities of this partnership are as rewarding for both parties and often critical to success.
We believe more resources are required to change the mind set of young people to become more adaptable to future change and more prepared to secure and manage their own career and financial trajectories.
