UNpreneur – How to Make Money from Your Idea

A series of 6 workshops to help you develop your enterprise skills, freelancing, start-up business, or social enterprise.

The series of 6 workshops brings you together with students and graduates from 15 universities across the UK to share experiences and work on developing your side hustle, freelance or business idea in a challenging and supportive environment. The workshop series will be made up of 6 engaging, interactive and (fun!) practical sessions, designed to help you with every step of the way from a scribbled down idea to the launch of your business!


Week 1

It’s All About You: The first session is all about YOU! It’s important that we build solid foundations for you and your idea to thrive.

Week 2

Customers: How do you gain customers? And, more importantly, the right ones for you?

Week 3

Money: We’ll look at the different sources of money from idea stage to scale-up. What do you REALLY need to make progress.

Week 4

Hear from Other UNpreneurs: You’ll have the opportunity to hear from other student and graduate UNpreneurs in this special panel session.

Week 5

Humans: You will need other humans to help you. From team members to mentors and advisers. We’ll explore all the humans who have a part to play in your UNpreneurial adventure.

Week 6

Bringing it All Together: We’ll bring together the lessons from the entire Bootcamp and leave you with an ACTION plan, so you can achieve your goals. Before applying please make sure that you are able to attend ALL of the dates listed.
