The Engineers in Business Fellowship prize fund allowed us to provide an additional value-add and competitive element to our online Entrepreneurship course. The Fellowship provided some of our engineering students with the confidence and self-belief that they had a strong business idea which they can pursue further. It also opened up more broadly the option to pursue a business career for some of the students. For example, one student said: ‘I wasn’t thinking about a career in business before, but I am now!’
We are excited to see what their next steps will be!
