This Westminster Higher Education Forum seminar will focus on how universities and colleges can encourage more students and graduates to start their own business. 

It is scheduled as Government and the higher and further education sectors begin to implement the recommendations of both Lord Young's enterprise report on encouraging business startups, and Sir Tim Wilson's review of university-business collaboration.

Focus of the seminar 

Delegates will assess the impact of initiatives such as: 

  • the HEFCE and UnLtd social entrepreneurship partnership
  • the introduction of enterprise societies within universities and colleges
  • the new StartUp Loans scheme providing Government-backed loans for young entrepreneurs.

Planned sessions also focus on how enterprise education can be embedded into higher education curriculums and the practical steps universities and colleges can take to support student and graduate startups. 

This seminar includes an address from Rachel Samuels, HE Policy Adviser, Knowledge Exchange and Skills Team, HEFCE. 

The seminar is run by the Westminster Higher Education Forum.
