Kingston University fosters innovation and provides entrepreneurship education and training for students, graduates and University staff, as well as fledgling businesses and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the area. We also lead several regional networks devoted to supporting entrepreneurship.
Students at Kingston can take part in competitions, awards programmes and activities designed to support entrepreneurship and encourage enterprising young people to get involved in business. We help graduates to start new ventures and students to develop their enterprise skills
Many activities provide opportunities for SMEs to discover the next generation of business leaders by working alongside talented students and Kingston University alumni in start-ups, projects and master classes.
Whether your enterprise is commercial, social or public, you’ll find a variety of events to get involved in, including masterclasses, competitions, newsletters and learning materials.
