The Entrepreneurship Society was launched by HCfE in 2014. As the largest non-sports society at the University of Reading they run their own programme of events for their members through the academic year, featuring alumni and local business leaders, and aim to encourage and support student innovation and entrepreneurship. One of the most significant events for the society is the Entrepreneurship Conference, a networking event launched in 2020 featuring several successful business leaders who share their invaluable insights on starting and growing a business.

Speaking about her new position as Co-President, Karin said:

"From an entrepreneurial perspective, the ongoing pandemic offers more opportunities than obstacles. We intend to bring together the most innovative, creative and open minds, which will equip the students for their coming entrepreneurial journeys."

Sarah added:

"Running the Entrepreneurship Society will be a huge responsibility and challenge. Everyone should have the essence of an entrepreneur - I believe what makes an excellent entrepreneur is someone who gives back to the community in different aspects, such as money, education and knowledge."

The new Co-Presidents aim to collaborate to drive student engagement in entrepreneurship across campus and are supported by a committee of other students. James Cook is the Head of Marketing and is supported by three Marketing Officers, Stacy Chen, Candice Yu and Abir Tarique Hridoy. Alexia Selahiye and Craig Davison are the Events Officers and Vedant Gupta and Shlok Maheshwari are the Business Development officers.
