Enterprise: For students

We can help you achieve your entrepreneurial ambitions and support you on an enterprising journey.

Enterprise Bath

Are you an undergraduate or postgraduate of the University of Bath who is looking to start a business, get intrapreneurial industry experience, or test the commercial potential of an idea or research project?

Enterprise Bath is a university department which offers advice, business mentors, competitions, masterclasses, expert talks from exciting guest speakers, placements and networking opportunities to aspiring entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs through our extra-curricular programme of events. See all enterprise events.

Watch the video and learn how Enterprise Bath has supported some of the students.

Student Entrepreneurship Programme

Over the course of the academic year we will be offering a wide range of online workshops, speaker events and competitions to undergraduates and postgraduates who have an idea for a business.

Participants who complete the Student Entrepreneurship Programme will be awarded a certificate from the global number one business incubator, SETsquared Partnership.

You can sign up to the Entrepreneurship Programme at any stage in the academic year but to receive the SETsquared Partnership certificate you must:

  • Attend three online workshops of your choice

  • Match with a mentor

  • Submit a business plan (after we teach you how to write one of course!)

  • Pitch your business idea to us in the Dragons' Den (don’t worry there will be plenty of practice sessions and advice from experts)

  • Record and submit a short reflective video of your experience

If you would like to sign up to the Entrepreneurship Programme please join our Microsoft Teams group below. If you are not quite ready to commit to a business idea yet you can just come along to our events by registering on our events page.

The Student Entrepreneurship Programme is certified by the SETsquared Partnership. To find out more about what you can expect, take a look at the Student Entrepreneurship Journey.
