I've got a business idea, where do I go now?

Best way to start, is coming for a 1:1 Confidential Idea Generation session. 

This is basically an opportunity to engage with your idea and put you in contact with people who will help you push your idea forward. 

Fire an email to us and we'll hook you up with the first meeting. 

Bring along: 

  • Notepad
  • Information about your idea (Why, How and What)

I've got a business, how can you help me?

Awesome, you've jumped a stage. Come and chat with us about your business and we'll see how we can support its growth.

I'm not an entrepreneur, and don't want to be, is there a place for me?

Okay, that's cool. It isn't for everyone, maybe you will discover something else from us. 

We run workshops across the year tailored to help you learn about new industries and powerful ways to create an enterprising mindset. 

What are my chances of making new friends?

Yes, Igniting Enterprise is known for finding new friends in the same mindset you are and for finding co-founders to new projects or businesses. 

Are we a traditional university society? Drinks?

We do go out for socials at least once a term but its not our main function, our main function is to help each other grow. 

Can I ever be a committee member?

If you're eager, self motivated, driven and a team player - we'd love to meet you!
