The Entrepreneurship Hub, set up in 2018 by Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship, 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 to network and get involved in their 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.
Please note that the Hub is open for application, but due to the ongoing pandemic we are operating with a maximum capacity of six users at any one time. For the full details of using the Hub whilst the pandemic is ongoing, please view our COVID-19 induction here.
To apply for the Hub, students must complete the application form here. Once this form has been completed, please hand it into room 271 of the Edith Morley building or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and your application will be reviewed by Alex Baker, Support Administrator for HCfE.
