Student initiatives

Henley Enterprise Lab co-ordinates three major events for students annually, with each one helping students take another step towards starting their own business:

- Henley Greenshoots Seed Finance Award Scheme. This is a scheme which nurtures and supports start-ups by awarding cash prizes to start-ups that show the potential to grow and become sustainable businesses.

- IDEAFEST Student Business Idea Competition. This is our annual entrepreneurship themed contest, aimed at getting students to work on developing a business idea that could someday be commercialised. There is prize money up for grabs for the best idea!

- Henley Summer Start-Up Boot Camp. This is our final event of the academic year and a chance for students to get hands-on with all the steps of setting up a business from scratch.

Other initiatives, which students can access whenever they need them, include the Business Idea and Start-Up Clinic appointments that are held weekly for students to discuss an idea for a business that they would some day like to set up.
