Description

Apply to join the extra-curricular BETA Enterprise student start-up support programme (available to current PU students only).

The BETA Enterprise Programme improves students’ entrepreneurial abilities by providing a comprehensive programme of support for their business ideas. The programme provides free pre start-up and start-up support for students at Plymouth University via the Futures Entrepreneurship Centre.

The BETA Enterprise programme is free to join, running from October through to the end of May each academic year. Students that join may engage with the events provided as much or as little as they choose, the only assessed element of the programme is the optional pitch for a start-up funding grant of up to £1500 per start-up.

BETA Enterprise includes:

  • Weekly free one-on-one business mentoring (45 minute sessions, Wednesdays 1-5pm and some Thursdays, during term-time).

  • Monthly networking with local business mentors and business professionals.

  • Free skills workshops & guest lectures from entrepreneurs and alumni (October to May).

  • Opportunity to pitch for £1500 grant funding, 13 student teams funded last academic year, pitch days in January, March and April (terms and conditions apply, not available to students on Tier 4 visas due to visa restrictions).
