James Andrews, BSc Biology 2015-2018

James’ budding entrepreneurial journey was given a huge boost when he won a prize at Swansea University’s “The Big Pitch” competition. James had attended a number of Enterprise workshops and his dedication was rewarded when he secured a prestigious placement in Canada to work alongside Sir Terry Matthews OBE. One of the judges at the competition was so impressed with James that he invited him to apply for a place on the Alacrity programme, a 15-month programme that provides graduates with practical business training, software skills and mentoring so that they can develop as entrepreneurs and launch their own UK based technology companies.

“The Enterprise team are fantastic and make every effort possible to help young entrepreneurs succeed. I have already benefited from great mentorship and huge life-changing opportunities.”
