Entrepreneurs Club isn’t just for business students, it’s for any self-starter with a passion project or a desire to carve their own career path.
And don’t let the name ‘entrepreneur’ fool you, you don’t need to be a business student. If you strip back the jargon, an entrepreneur is simply someone who takes an idea or product and creates a business.
So if you have the spark of an idea, that’s all you need to get started. But where do you go from there?
Well, you can start by coming along to our Entrepreneurs Club to meet the NTU Enterprise team, hear from inspiring business owners and build your network.
Stick around to celebrate our recent Launch It Grant competition, as we wrap up the event by announcing the winners of the Launch It Grant, with over £3,500 of prize money to be awarded!
