After successfully helping 35 student businesses launch last year, Brunel Innovation Hub is now introducing a comprehensive programme of 28 workshops to support and develop entrepreneurial-minded students with a prize fund of £10,000 and a potential Tier 1 Visa endorsement.

The new VENTURE program starts on October 22nd and is open to students at all levels from first year to PhD. Delegates will benefit from a wide range of workshops including intellectual property, market research and networking. 22 of these will be given by industry experts from outside the university, giving students the opportunity to hear from specialists in their field. By attending 4 core workshops and a choice of two from the remaining optional workshops students will be eligible to apply for funding and, for international students a Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) Visa.

The Innovation Hub helped Venture winner Ufeli Ani launch her business idea last year, “The Brunel Venture Scheme is excellent. The whole experience was really easy both to engage in and to complete the necessary stages. I was able to fit the sessions around my studies and my part time job which was really useful. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to the scheme; the mentoring and contacts are invaluable.”
