SBE student is awarded Entrepreneurial Undergraduate of the Year

SBE undergraduate, Jake Brown, was recently awarded Entrepreneurial Undergraduate of the Year at this year's Loughborough University Student Enterprise Awards. 

Jake, a Management Sciences student, has run the Utilise project in Loughborough Town for the past year which works in partnership with local supermarkets to help reduce food waste. By redirecting usable food that would otherwise be thrown away, Utilise turns that food into the nutritious meals that are served at a cafe each Saturday in Loughborough on a ‘pay-as-you-feel’ basis. Jake also received an individual recognition in the Enactus regional competition this year.

Next year, Jake is embarking on a industrial placement year and will be handing over the Utilise project to a new committee.  

Congratulations Jake on a brilliant achievement!
