Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship - Entrepreneurship Society
In partnership with Reading University Students' Union (RUSU), back in 2014 HCfE launched Reading Entrepreneurs, the Univeristy's Entrepreneurship Society, to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship amongst students.
Whether you’re aiming to start your own business, join an SME or work for a big corporation, Reading Entrepreneurs can help give you the tools, resources and confidence you need.
Reading Entrepreneurs is the biggest non-sport society on campus and runs several events throughout the academic year, including guest speakers, lectures and more.
Taking up the role of Society President for the 2019/20 academic year is Julia Kala, a BA Business and Management student.
Speaking about her appointment as President, Julia said: "Rather than individual events, myself and the other Committee members want to make the Entrepreneurship Society run a series of interconnecting events that cover the different stages of an entrepreneur's journey - how to develop an idea, marketing and branding, legal requirements, seeking finance and so on. The aim is to give students confidence in building their own start-up."
