Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurial skills have many uses, whether you're starting a business or dealing with the challenges of everyday life.

Entrepreneurial skills can give you the confidence to try out new ideas, take risks, explore the unexplored and work with other people in a range of different situations.

Transferable skills from entrepreneurship will not only improve your understanding of how business works, but can help you succeed academically during your time at UCL, and in your future career. UCL Innovation & Enterprise offers a wide range of interactive and immersive experiences designed to enrich your time at UCL and prepare you for the world beyond. For example, we offer Enterprise Bootcamps, guest lectures, Entrepreneur Challenges, business advice and office space.

The Student View


Marie Legrain

"During my first year of university, I joined UCL Innovation and Enterprise's three-day Enterprise Boot Camp. The aim is to learn and discover as much as possible about the business world and understand what risks and opportunities it faces.
 

"I would recommend this event to everyone, whether you are an undergraduate, a postgraduate, whether or not you know about business and startups. I soon realised that business and entrepreneurship were key in complementing my studies and preparing me for the real world - I am now a Student Ambassador for UCL Innovation and Enterprise."

Rice Inc – a winning enterprise

Third year students Kisum Chan and Lincoln Lee (BSc Biomedical Sciences), Julia Vannaxay (BSc Statistics and Management for Business) and Vannie Koay (BSc Economics) developed a new way to dry rice, so farmers waste less and earn more.


Supported by UCL Innovation & Enterprise, the students' social enterprise, Rice Inc, won the Hult Prize 2018, presented to them in New York by President Bill Clinton.

They received $1 million to invest in further developing their idea, with the goal of ending food poverty in Southeast Asia.
