As an audience-led Institute we co-create our activities with our community; we focus on diversity, inclusivity & being a collective. Through this board we aim to identify effective ways of introducing entrepreneurship to people of all backgrounds, up-skilling our students and enhancing their experiences, contributing to their future success.

The Entrepreneurship Support Fund gives societies at King’s up to £2,000 to run initiatives that offer King’s students the opportunity to have entrepreneurial experiences, be innovative and develop transferable skills that enhance their futures and King's experience.
Open to all King’s societies and student groups, the Fund encourages committee members to think creatively and come up with innovative ways to engage their members.
Examples of initiatives supported include student-run workshops to develop practical skills in emerging innovation within course areas, networking events, hackathons, incubators, competitions, wellbeing and charity events, film screenings, entrepreneur's cafes, awareness nights, meet & greets, company visits & debates.
