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 2018/19 academic year is Harry Good-Stephenson, a BA Entrepreneurship student.
Speaking about his appointment as President, Harry said: "It is an absolute privilege to be appointed the president of Reading Entrepreneurs for the upcoming year. As I was treasurer for Reading Entrepreneurs last year, I have developed an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of such a society, and hope to bring an air of continuity. We have ambitions to double our membership within the next year, and we are currently working on planning and organising a calendar of professional and inspiring events for the upcoming academic year. Anyone that studies at the University of Reading can join and gain a wealth of entrepreneurial knowledge."
