This Tuesday we’ll be kicking off the UK’s first ever Student Entrepreneurs Question Time in Manchester! NACUE will be bringing students and enterprise enthusiasts together with policy makers and industry experts.
Teaming up with Santander we’ll be delivering three party conferences this autumn.
Josh Booth, 21, currently studying Law at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) is one of many students looking forward to the Labour party conference at Manchester’s Town Hall.
Josh is currently one of three students at MMU working on setting up an enterprise society called UniBridge. UniBridge aims to offer a variety of services to startups and established businesses as well as fulfilling students entrepreneurship aspirations.
Josh would like to leave the conference with renewed hope that this generation will be supported and respected in the wider world on entrepreneurship. He asks: “What support is available to students trying to establish themselves? Why are students looked down on to some extent, when they have been deemed ‘the future?”
The unique debates will address the issues that young people feel affect them the most.
Panellists will include:
Johnny Luk, NACUE CEO
Suzy Verma, Corporate Director of Santander Universities Global Division UK
Lord Mitchell, Labour
William Bain, Labour MP
Andrew Freeman, The Finance Foundation
The Labour party panellists will be chaired by Jonathan Moules Enterprise Correspondent at the Financial Times. Speaking about the current state of entrepreneurship he says: "Entrepreneurship has become a major issue for universities the world over so it is crucial to hear what students have to say on the subject.”
