Alumni contribute to new student start-up boxes

Several of our entrepreneurial alumni have contributed words of wisdom, samples and business leaflets to help inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs at Loughborough.

The Loughborough Enterprise Network recently launched the new “Start-Up Lab” on campus where students will be able to work on their business ideas and seek advice from staff, fellow students and alumni.

As part of this students are given a start-up box, helping to inspire ideas with necessary supplies to help spark their business brains and "unbox their brilliance".

Paul Humphreys (Management Sciences 2010), Oliver Sidwell (Geography and Management 2007) and Christina Akintoye (Politics 2017) shared some inspirational top tips for our current students.

Alumni Tamsin Gordon (Graphic Communication 2014), Liam Doolan (Industrial Design and Technology 2011), Becky White (Sport Management 2011) and Alex Lees (Product Design Engineering 2015) all shared examples of their company leaflets and business cards.

Also included in the box are alumnus Edward Williams' (Industrial Design and Technology 2011) Candy Kittens sweets and a range useful stationery supplies.

Thank you to all alumni who have contributed to the unbox your brilliance project so far. If you are interested in contributing to the start-up boxes in the future, please get in touch.
