The Enterprise Development Hub is a University-wide initiative for students, alumni and staff that want to become business start-ups/owners, self-employed, freelance, contractor, sole trader and those who wish to be more entrepreneurial. Dr Simon Best heads up the Hub and is supported by academics and external industry experts.
Our mission is to improve positive outcomes for students, alumni and staff with regards to the development of enterprise and entrepreneurial skills. We do this by providing the collaborative support of academics, external practitioners and volunteers.
The Enterprise Development Hub provides support, training and motivation through a range of workshops, seminars, mentoring and events. Through our networks we also offer seminars on special areas such as, e-commerce, social and eco-enterprise.
The Hub is based in the Williams building (W141) and operates an open door policy. Please feel free to email us (EDH@MDX) or drop by to arrange an appointment.
So far the Enterprise Development Hub has helped hundreds of students, staff and alumni develop their self-employment aspirations as well as improve their employability by developing skills that are valuable to businesses. Many of the students we work with end up volunteering within EDH helping support our activities and sharing their knowledge and experience.
