What will students gain from Enterprisers?

Well, for a start you can learn new and innovative ways to think about your research. In particular, it can help you learn how to raise awareness of the impact of your research within communities. The skills gained on Enterprisers are equally applicable to developing a new venture, a student society, a community project and indeed research projects going forward. Not only that, it is a great environment for developing self-confidence and other personal skills like networking and team awareness. At the end of the programme, you will learn to think more creatively and entrepreneurially.

The Enterprisers programme, established by the Cambridge-MIT Institute in 2002, is currently managed and delivered by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL). CfEL has been involved in delivering 18 Enterprisers programmes and 3 Intraprisers programmes since January 2003. 1000+ students have been inspired by the programme to date and over 45 entrepreneurial ventures are currently being pursued by Enterprisers alumni.
