Would you like external advice for your enterprise & a fresh perspective?


Are you currently facing any business issues or considering new opportunities for your  small business or social enterprise?

Would you like external advice and a fresh perspective?

If so, the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies at the University of Leeds would like to hear from you!

We are inviting applications from small businesses and social enterprises who would like the opportunity to work with a group of final year undergraduate students undertaking a consulting project to investigate and provide advice on an issue that is important to you.

Enterprises who successfully apply and work with a student group may be provided with £400 to support the costs of the project. This is an opportunity to receive tailored advice and a fresh perspective on a challenge that is currently affecting your enterprise.  The project would run from the beginning of February until mid-April 2020.
