On Friday 11th June the University of Surrey Student Enterprise held a virtual awards ceremony to acknowledge the hard work of our Surrey Student start-ups this academic year. Under COVID-safe guidelines, the show was livestreamed from Stag TV studio this year to help elevate the awards. The event proved to be a success, with many virtual claps and cheers taking place throughout the ceremony.
The Student Enterprise programme is known for its enthusiastic and professional community! Business support to entrepreneurial students from all disciplines can take place, potentially taking charge of their personal development and reinforcement of transferable skills. Thanks to Santander Universities and HEIF funding, we are able to award many students, graduates and their businesses, maximising their success.
