Entrepreneurs in Residence network event

Corporate Hub, 4th Floor Business & Law School


Would you like to be part of an Entrepreneurs in Residence Network?

Come and find out more at the kickoff event which will be held at Newcastle Business School, City Campus East, Northumbria University on Wednesday 19th July 8-11am.

Register your place below!

The event will provide:

  • A brief overview of the Entrepreneurship Degrees and Northumbria’s student and enterprise activities
  • An ‘in conversation’ with entrepreneurs who are already working alongside academic partners and students
  • A working session to explore the potential scope of the role of Entrepreneurs in Residence and what benefits it can offer to everyone involved
  • A chance to network with Entrepreneurs and the Newcastle Business School team
  • A chance to meet and network with Entrepreneurs in Residence across the Small Business Charter schools

With support from the Small Business Charter we are delighted to announce we are launching an Entrepreneurs in Residence Network in the North East – and we need your help to design and develop it, and perhaps be part of it.

Entrepreneurs in Residence are owner managers who support the students on programmes that promote new venture creation and enterprising activities. It’s a chance to share your knowledge and expertise by contributing to the development and growth of budding entrepreneurs and their new ventures as well as the broader development of enterprising graduates. We need your help to scope the details of these roles; some of the ways you could contribute could involve:

  • Consulting on current programmes
  • Enhancing the experience of our students through activities such as mentoring, coaching and career guidance
  • Helping to foster business ideas and contribute to a variety of classroom activities
  • Acting as ambassadors to help promote Higher Education and support student recruitment. 

Your commitment could range from a couple of hours a semester to perhaps much more than that.

This is a brand new initiative and we are keen to involve enterprising individuals in shaping the roles and the network, whether you are an owner manager, business founder or from a relevant support organisation.

Newcastle Business School has a strong track record of providing innovative entrepreneurship programmes. Northumbria University is ranked first in the UK for graduate start-ups based on estimated turnover (HEBCIS 2015/16). We constantly search for new ways to challenge, innovate and improve and have a thriving research community.
