The talks are for 20 minutes with 10 minutes Q&A, this keeps the event highly engaged and ensures a positive experience.

Worcester Enterprise

At the University of Worcester we believe that entrepreneurship provides opportunities for our students, enhancing their career prospects after graduation, empowering them to start their own business and enabling them to cope with an ever changing world.
We do this by supporting students entrepreneurial development through curricular programmes and extra-curricular activities. All students are offered enterprise electives in both their first and second years. Through our student incubator, media lab, training programmes, competitions and pop-up retail units, we connect students with the global networks, resources and know-how that allow them to succeed. Our student enterprise society provides a range of activities which enable entrepreneurship at the university to have a clear student led element.
