The University of Bath is holding its first Enterprise Day on campus, taking place at the Weston Studio in The Edge.
The day is designed to bring together our existing enterprise community including students, researchers, entrepreneurs and representatives from larger organisations. Our alumni are also invited, many of whom are now launching or running their own enterprises.
There will be a wide range of personal insights and experiences shared by those who have turned their innovative ideas into real business propositions. A showcase of start-ups will be on display and a drinks reception will close the event as we celebrate some recent student entrepreneurial success. More on University of Bath Enterprise.
