Our B Start-Up programme offers alumni and students the opportunity to start and run a business, after graduation or during university. Whether the intention is to work for an organisation or to be self-employed in the longer term, our B Start-Up programme supports the development of transferable, all round enterprising skills and confidence to stand out and be successful in any career.

What support is available?

The programme support includes:

  • Training to build your entrepreneurial skills and business knowledge to turn your idea into a viable venture or social enterprise
  • Business Start-Up 1-2-1 support
  • The opportunity to be a part of a growing network of like-minded entrepreneurs
