Here’s the simplest way of describing how the Student Enterprise team is changing lives in 2023 - enterprise skills can get you jobs. Good jobs.
They can be the keys to unlocking a new job, enable you to do better at your current job, you can even use enterprise skills to start a business and create jobs. You can also apply them to other areas of your life – understanding your personal values, organising your time, breaking down your barriers to social success.
With enterprise skills you can make 2023 the year you take more control of your life.
Great! How do I get involved?
The Student Enterprise team at London South Bank University (LSBU) offers events, funding, networks, space, and programmes to support people into employment, self-employment or to starting their own business. This is primarily open to LSBU students and graduates, but we also open many of our events to the wider community - supporting individuals from outside of LSBU.
We are excited to support even more budding entrepreneurs and enterprise enthusiasts through our events and programmes in 2023.
We have brought together our top activities and ways to get involved this semester - that’s until Easter for you non-students out there - whether you're an LSBU student or not!
I’m A Student
The good news is there are many opportunities for you to develop your enterprising abilities during your time at LSBU. Come and get involved to develop the skills, thinking and actions that will stand you apart from the crowd, now and in the future.
The best part is, it’s all free for you. Check them out here.
