Building an Entrepreneur – 24-26 March 2021

Student Enterprise are delighted to announce our annual Building an Entrepreneur Event will be taking place across three lunchtime sessions from the 24-26th March in a new exciting digital format!

Building an Entrepreneur is the University of Surrey Student Enterprise’s annual showcase of talent, ideas and start-up businesses.

The initiative helps budding entrepreneurs at every stage of their enterprise skills development:

  • Explore their potential through practical enterprise workshops
  • Experience the development of their idea through enterprise challenges 
  • Execute their business idea in the dedicated campus incubator.

This event is a celebration of the exciting students and graduates currently involved in Student Enterprise at all levels, and an opportunity for you to hear from each of our cohorts!
