Enterprise Dinner

For many years the University has held a biennial spin-out dinner to celebrate the success of its businesses and to bring together academic entrepreneurs with investors and others who have been involved in supporting the businesses.

In 2015, the University’s spin-out dinner evolved to the enterprise dinner – to showcase both academic and student enterprise. This was an occasion to celebrate entrepreneurship and enterprise activities across the University. The dinner will be a regular event in the calendar, every other year, providing the opportunity to recognise those students and academics who have achieved success through their entrepreneurial and innovative activities.
