The Entrepreneurship Hub, set up in 2018 by Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship (HCfE), is an initiative to provide current University of Reading or Henley Business School students with a workplace to develop their business ideas.
By using the Hub, located in room 273 of the Edith Morley building (Whiteknights campus), students can work on their business ideas, with use of shared IT facilities, office space and lockers provided.
The biggest benefit of using the Hub is the chance to work alongside likeminded students, all aiming to build their business idea from the ground up. By working in a communal space, students can share ideas, offer each other assistance and even build partnerships. The Entrepreneurship Society also use the Hub as a base for their initiatives, making it a perfect opportunity for students get involved in their networking events.
The majority of students utilising the Hub will be either studying on entrepreneurship modules or participating in the IDEAFEST Student Business Idea Competition and similar competitions, but all student applications are welcome providing they have a serious business idea they are seeking to develop.
Kolatat Phaiboonnukulkij, BSc Real Estate student: "I decided to join the Entrepreneurship Hub to further develop an idea that later on I will use to participate in IDEAFEST. The Entrepreneurship Hub is where ideas, innovation and invention are born. It's an entrepreneurial journey that you will share with others."
Please note that the Hub is open for applications but there is a maximum capacity of six users at any one time. For the full details of using the Hub, please view our induction here.
