Featured alumni

Harry Boulton, BSc Economics

Football-mad Harry went to the University's Ingenuity Lab with the idea of creating affordable, high-quality and innovative goalkeeping equipment. He has since developed his business idea into an exciting new venture, Thorne Goalkeeping.

One of the key things I’ve learned is the importance of collaboration. I benefit from mentoring from successful entrepreneurs who share their knowledge and add real value to my business.

After starting his career using analytics to advise the police, Home Office and Ministry of Justice, Muz moved to Accenture to lead an innovative project using digital technology to tackle youth violence.
