Aston University is proud to be named Outstanding Entrepreneurial University (THE awards 2020). We have an exciting schedule of entrepreneurial events and programmes. Please explore these pages to discover more about how we support enterprising Aston students and graduates. All of our activity for 2020 will take place online, due to Covid-19 precautions.

Our Mission:

Aston Enterprise’s mission is to help curious students and graduates to explore, experiment & launch new ideas. 

Being entrepreneurial doesn’t just mean starting up a business. It means being an opportunity spotter, a creative problem solver and a passionate doer. We have a number of events and programmes to help you develop these important skills, whether you’re looking to start up a business now or later in life, get a glimpse into self-employment, or have the biggest impact possible in your chosen career and the ever-changing world around you. 

We focus on giving you real-life insights from entrepreneurial people in diverse industries, opportunities to work with other engaged students to learn in a practical way and encouraging you to think differently.
