This one-day workshop will focus on the fundamentals of developing an entrepreneurial mindset.It will help you heighten the impact of your research into global humanitarian challenges and think about future career paths. Even if you don’t have entrepreneurial ambitions, this workshop will help you reframe the skills you're developing during your time as a student at UCL.
