Enterprise Society Launched
The next generation of budding entrepreneurs joined industry experts from The University of Northampton, The National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) and CLC Consultancy, for the launch of Tresham’s Enterprise Society on Wednesday 5th February at the college’s Kettering Campus.
The Tresham Enterprise Society has been set up for students who want to learn how to start and run successful businesses in any industry. The society is student led and the group has a chance to receive £2,000 in grant funding to help get their business ideas off the ground. Regular support and seminars from NACUE will be held for the group of students to help them gain networking opportunities as well as helping to keep them on the right track in setting up, promoting and growing their business.
The event was hosted by Kristian Mackie of NACUE, who himself started a business at the age of 18 and is now an enterprise start up advisor.
Guest speaker at the launch was former Tresham student and successful business owner, Claire Corkram of CLC Consultancy. She gave an honest insight into the challenges of starting a business, which raised interesting debates and questions from the students.
Anglea Barton, Head of School for Business and IT at Tresham said:
“Our new Enterprise Society will offer students across the college to chance to gain experience they can use for years to come. We have young people and adults learning skills in Hair and Beauty, Construction, Engineering, Business and many others who then go on to set up their own business after completing their qualifications so any chance to practice their entrepreneurial skills beforehand will be of great benefit.”
