Idea Feedback Sessions
You can book a meeting with us to discuss and get advice on developing your entrepreneurial skills and/or venture. Whilst we have different specialisms, every member of our team can discuss and advise on early stage business ideas.
You can also book sessions specifically to talk about our Womens Entrepreneurship Programme as well as how we support Student Societies.
Please note that as of the 16th March, all sessions will be taking place online rather than face-to-face.
Our student ambassadors represent us at events and help run our outreach and engagement programme activities throughout the year, particularly during Welcome Week. Positions are paid and on a flexible basis. For more information follow our Facebook page.
