Launch your entrepreneurial idea that could create impact and make a change.

You don’t need any experience, everyone is welcome, no matter what you’re studying. Whether you don’t have a clue where to start or you have too many ideas to choose from. Try entrepreneurship with purpose.

We offer a calendar packed full of events, competitions with cash-prizes and programmes with structured support. Meet a business adviser, find funding and meet like-minded peers in our thriving entrepreneurial community.

While you can dive in at any point below are some suggestions for the best starting point.


Join us as we plant trees to celebrate the record-breaking 105 student startups that formed last academic year. We're teaming up with our colleagues in Sports & Exercise Science with their annual 'Big Dig' taking place on Wednesday 26th April at Easter Bush Campus. 

This support programme is designed to empower those student entrepreneurs who identify as female to succeed. Hear from inspiring guest speakers at the monthly meet-ups alongside this network of supportive women. (You do not need an idea or any experience for this event).
