Enterprise and Entrepreneur

Our aim is to provide a forum for students to network and share ideas, provide an environment that will foster innovation and entrepreneurship.

What is an entrepreneur?

Thousands of people search for a definitive answer on what makes an entrepreneur, so what does it actually mean to be one? It doesn’t mean you have to be setting up new business ventures every day; an entrepreneur is someone with the foresight, drive and ambition to take a risk and solve business or consumer problems.

Entrepreneur Club gives students the skills and mindset to start real companies.

Our programs help students leverage their talents and tenacity to build a viable startup. We’ll train you in the skills and innovative thinking that allow founders to create successful businesses, challenging you to take a real startup from idea to execution and impact.

Please email sercenterprise@serc.ac.uk if you are interested in finding out more about mentoring and support for your business idea.

The Entrepreneurs Club organise and host a series of workshops and motivational talks throughout the year which are designed to develop specific knowledge and skills. These are delivered by a range of industry experts and internal stakeholders to support the needs of budding entrepreneurs.
