Bangor University

Bangor University’s Strategy 2030 was published in 2021 and includes the priority to aspire for ‘greater employability, start-up and commercialisation across North Wales’.

Student enterprise and entrepreneurship sits within the employability agenda at the University and B-Enterprising forms part of a dedicated team within the Careers & Employability Service who work with internal and external partners to increase the knowledge, skills and opportunities available for students and graduates.

B-Enterprising offers students and graduates with a range of opportunities to help develop their enterprise skills or to support them in starting a new business or freelance career. These include: 

  • One to one mentoring with our Graduate Start-Up Coordinator
  • Funding to develop an idea or business.
  • Free shared office at our Incubation Space in the University’s Science Park (M-SParc)
  • Workshops and webinars
  • Free 12 months membership to IPSE for those interested in a freelance career.
  • Support with branding.
  • Online Enterprise Pathway
  • An annual Student Christmas Market which attracts over 2,000 customers.

The University also employs an Enterprise Education Development Coordinator to support academic staff to develop the embedding of enterprise education within the curriculum and to encourage research in the area. This is supported by a Staff Enterprise Fund to encourage enterprising projects and activities.
