Encouraging young entrepreneurs in Bournemouth

Enterprise Pavilion

Our recent trip to the Arts University College in Bournemouth was a real inspiration. Pete McKinley, the Photography course leader, very kindly gave us a tour of the campus where were able to take a look at the fantastic facilities and equipment on offer to the students. The galleries, workshops & studios had a great buzz about them.

One of the highlights of the tour was the Enterprise Pavillion (eP). To quote the University “The (eP) works to increase graduate retention and support the growth of creative businesses within the region. The eP contains 20 incubator units in 15,000 sq ft of serviced office accommodation, and also incorporates superb conference, meeting and technical facilities.”

For approximately £120 a week a graduate of the University can get a fully serviced office, broadband, plus professional reception services for their business. Not only that but the University provides them with plenty of networking opportunities as well as support from the course tutors.

It is a really inspiring set-up and something that the Concept Cupboard team would definitely like to see plenty more of in UK universities. Hopefully Concept Cupboard will help encourage more entrepreneurialism in students/graduates and provide them with a solid foundation for the future.
