What we do

Connect - For those curious about start-up, exploring new ideas whilst gaining entrepreneurial and enterprise skills.

Welcome to our Connect community!

The Connect community provides the opportunity for people to explore entrepreneurship and innovation skills without setting up a business – the home of entrepreneurial skill development for all. We offer our members the space to learn entrepreneurial skills and inspire the entrepreneurial spirit throughout our people and places!

How to get involved?

Examples are: attending an entrepreneurial mindset workshop run by the LSU enterprise team, help a start up with a real life problem through our Careers Network enterprise group coaching sessions, join an iconic red bus and tour London’s enterprising ecosystem at the VentureCrawl with the FutureSpace team, accelerate entrepreneurial skills with LEN’s fast paced hackathons and embed skills of Innovation and Entrepreneurship through our Personal Best Badge.   

Make sure you are signed up to our Connect community newsletter, this ensures that you don’t miss out on any opportunities that come your way – sign up here (don’t forget you can be part of more than one community).

Our LSU Enterprise team offer events, funding and advice to our early stage entrepreneurs, click the links below to see what they have on offer, you can follow them via FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn pages, or they’re based upstairs in the Student Hub in Loughborough Students' Union. Come and say hello in the Enterprise pod, no appointment necessary!

No matter what stage you’re at on your entrepreneurial journey, we are always here to support you.
