BSEEN at regional graduate entrepreneurship event

BSEEN and e4f
The BSEEN team with their Birmingham Science Park, Aston colleagues.

Birmingham Science Park Aston will be hosting an event on Monday 4th October 2010 showcasing a range of early-stage and growing graduate businesses from BSEEN and Entrepreneurs for the Future (e4f) businesses schemes.

Supported by the Working Neighbourhood Fund through Birmingham City Council, BSEEN (Birmingham Skills for Enterprise and Employability Network) aims to enable local graduates to pursue their entrepreneurial ambitions in a supportive learning environment. Currently, there is little support available for graduate businesses once their owners have left their universities, and an extremely challenging labour market.

Aston University manages BSEEN, alongside partners Birmingham University and Birmingham City University, and offers 6 months of free incubator access at Birmingham Science Park Aston - with training, mentoring, coaching and a wage subsidy. In total, 30 businesses will be supported over a 12 month period at Birmingham Science Park Aston.

Entrepreneurs for the future is a dedicated programme to help the next generation of ‘tech entrepreneurs’ deliver commercial success. The programme is run by Birmingham Science Park Aston and provides: 6-months desk/office space, office infrastructure, networking, specialist support (legal, finance, HR etc), Mentoring, Access to finance and people resources.
