University of Surrey
The University of Surrey's Enterprise Project embraces the Surrey Electrical and Electronic Engineers in Business Competition. The Enterprise Project is a year-long group project carried out by the second year students from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Surrey. Students work in groups to create innovative concepts relating to the Information Communications Technology, Electronics and Computing sector that have potential for commercialisation. The project offers an opportunity for the students to enhance their business awareness, build entrepreneurial skills and develop transferrable skills such as team working, project management, presentation, negotiation and leadership. In the final stage of the project, each group produces a business plan report and pitches their concept to a multi-disciplinary panel of judges from industry and academia during a Dragon’s Den event. The competition provides seed funds for the winning team to further develop their business concept.
