For Global Entrepreneurship week, we invited people to learn more about the work the University of Birmingham is doing with entrepreneurs in the region. There was something for existing SME entrepreneurs, someone with an idea, a student or alumni entrepreneur or a business professional looking to support the local economy by working with the University's careers network to mentor our budding entrepreneurs there will be something for you. Find out about the game changing cost-free academic support with access to cutting edge equipment and industry experts available to SMEs in the area that can help springboard the growth and development of your company with no strings attached.
