Enterprise societies in universities and colleges will provide students with the skills and support to develop and manage a business. The Government will aim to deliver enterprise societies into all 89 universities in England and at least 160 Further Education Colleges. BIS will work with the National Consortium of University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) and the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurs (NCGE) to provide recommendations by the end of June, with the aspiration to showcase the first new enterprise societies by November this year
NCGE welcomes the establishment of a network of Student Enterprise Societies. It is vital that we develop an entrepreneurial culture within Higher Education at a time when we need to grow the economy. NCGE, with our vast experience in working to stimulate Enterprise, looks forward to working with NACUE and BIS in driving forward this vital work.
