Student Futures Enterprise Activities Programme

It's your future

Supporting and encouraging student entrepreneurship

Teesside University is a great place for students to get involved in a wide range of enterprising experiences that will really 'give you wings'!

Whether it's Teesside Enactus, Teesside University Student Food Co-op or Teesside University Technology and Enterprise Club there is something for everyone.

Meet real entrepreneurs at one of our regular Tuesday evening events. This year we have guests speakers lined up from The Silicon Valley Bank, DigitalCity, Moon Jet Group, Snatch Mobile Gaming and many more!

Come along on a Wednesday afternoon to one of our Enterprise Skills sessions, which will focus on developing an entrepreneurial mind-set, confidence building, motivation, persuasion and decision-making. These sessions are open to all students and are fun, interactive workshops.

If you want to make a difference to the world and want to use business skills to improve people's lives, you might want to join Teesside Enactus - our award-winning student social enterprise team.

For more information about any of these activities or to talk about an enterprise idea you have, email then Andy Price a.price@tees.ac.uk for a chat and a coffee.

All of the Student Future enterprise programme activities are eligible as volunteering through Volun-tees .
