About the Event

The University of Bath is holding its second Enterprise Day on campus, taking place in the East Building.

The day is designed to bring together the University of Bath's existing enterprise community including students, researchers, entrepreneurs and representatives from larger organisations. Their alumni are also invited, many of whom are now launching or running their own enterprises. The event is open to all third sector organisations. 

There will be a wide range of personal insights and experiences shared by those who have turned their innovative ideas into real business propositions. A showcase of start-ups will be on display and a drinks reception will close the event as they celebrate some recent student entrepreneurial success. More on University of Bath Enterprise.
