Developing student and graduate entrepreneurship - enterprise in the curriculum, targeted support and the growing role for social enterprise
This conference will focus on how universities can best support students and graduates to start their own businesses and scale them up.
Delegates will discuss how to foster a culture of enterprise across the university including the impact of the Small Business Charter on how business schools support entrepreneurs, the creation of student-led enterprise societies and embedding enterprise in the curriculum.
Further sessions will look at the growing role of social entrepreneurship as an attractive pathway for graduates and the distinct challenges this presents - as well as what kind of support is most important for aspirant graduate entrepreneurs and how universities, accelerators and the finance sector can best meet these needs.
We expect attendees to include university leaders, enterprise departments, business schools and academics from other disciplines; banks, Start-Up Loan delivery partners, crowdfunding platforms and other lenders; Local Enterprise Partnerships; local authorities; consultancies; law firms and others with an interest in this important area of policy.
