Enterprise Educators UK
Enterprise Educators has been supporting and developing enterprise education for over ten years. Last month Frances Brown attend the Embedded Enterprise Exchange at Cardiff University hosted by EEUK. Frances Brown after her visit said, “It’s always great to take part in EEUK events and this was particularly important as we were learning and sharing practical how-to’s on embedding enterprise and enhancing enterprise opportunities for students from all subjects and faculties”. This relationship between EEUK and Accelerator has continued to grow over the past month leading to the partnership of EEUK with Accelerator along with other companies to host June’s Creative Enterprise Month.
The National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs or NACUE was founded in 2009. The organization is essentially a nationwide network of student societies that work together in order to promote and support an enterprising generation. NACUE is conveniently based in Accelerators office space, which allows for a strong and healthy friendship between the two organizations. This month NACUE will be working with Accelerator, London-Met, and EEUK in order to provide students with the ability to learn from experts and each other. Curran Mckay, creative development manager for NACUE, as been working closely with Frances Brown over these last few weeks and is excited at the possible benefits Creative Enterprise Month will offer the next enterprising generation. When asked about the event Curran Mckay said, “At NACUE Create we recognise the importance and value in nurturing the professional development of creative students, as well as the unique challenges they face, which is why we’re delighted to be partnering on London Met’s Creative Enterprise Month”.
