Enterprise Challenge


The Enterprise Challenge

A challenge to encourage and support students/graduates in the creation of an innovative business idea, which might include a Social Enterprise. Launching for the eighth year in October 2017 and concluding in May 2018, the process includes a series of support workshops, business mentoring and continuous online support, resulting in the submission of a final business plan. All support workshops are captured on film and broadcast live through Facebook Live with edited highlights available on YouTube.  See previous videos here
