New website links enterprise activities across Cambridge
A new website designed to improve the flow of information to staff and students on the wide range of enterprise activities at the University of Cambridge has been launched.
The site, called The Enterprise network, will act as repository for all enterprise-related activity at the university. It brings together information on enterprise-related training, events, support, funding and research organised by organisations and student societies across the university.
Dr Tim Minshall from the IfM explained the purpose of the site: "Thanks to the efforts of many people over many years, we now have a rich 'ecosystem' of activities to support enterprise and innovation at Cambridge.
“With so much being organised by so many groups, there is a risk that it may be hard for students and staff to easily find the information they need. The aim of this site is to simplify access to that information."
The site provides resources and links for those wishing to develop their enterprise skills, attend enterprise events, learn about enterprise, work for a start-up, or start their own business.
The site also provides a calendar of enterprise events that are run throughout the year by student societies, academic departments and organisations in the Cambridge high tech business cluster.
The development of the Enterprise Network website has been kindly supported by the EPSRC, the Institute for Manufacturing, and St. John's Innovation Centre. You can find the website here: http://www.enterprisenetwork.group.cam.ac.uk/
