Starting your own business is easier than you think and can be incredibly rewarding. It’s also one of the best ways to gain business skills – you may learn more in 6 months of running your own business than a few years at a company. So even if your first idea doesn’t work out, you’ll gain experience that will make you much more employable
The Launchpad is a newly refurbished incubation space for budding entrepreneurs and business owners to use to conduct meetings, market research and connect with fellow entrepreneurs.
Located in the Talbot building, this space offers an enclosed meeting booth, so that you can meet potential clients or mentors in privacy. It also has a large meeting space if you have a team to support your business, as well as an area to conduct more informal chats.
If you are interested in using this space, please email email@example.com.
The Enterprise Team is on hand to offer bespoke, 1-2-1 business support for our students and graduates. Whether this is by meeting one of the team, or getting you paired up with a mentor from our oustanding alumni who work alongside us.
