What we do

We hold a variety of different events throughout the academic year to help Aston students to explore enterprise, experiment with their entrepreneurial ideas and launch new ventures. These might include talks from guest entrepreneurs, panel discussions, practical workshops, hackathons and more. 

All events are free to attend - you can come along to one to see if it's for you, or attend as many as you can. We see all types of students get involved in these sessions (all years and all schools) - so get involved! You are welcome whether you have a business idea, or aren't sure about entrepreneurship and just want to find out more.

 

You can sign up for all of our events & programmes for 2022/3 on our Linktree.
