Enterprise and academia


Entrepreneur, original Dragons’ Den star and founder of School for Startups, Doug Richard, will be hosting a day of seminars at Plymouth University on how academic institutions can become more enterprising.

The Entrepreneurial Institution (EI) Challenge Event will take place on Monday December 10, with the free two-hour workshops open to managers, researchers, educators and students from Higher Education providers in Devon and Cornwall.

Attendees of the seminars will learn how to successfully employ the tools of entrepreneurship to stay ahead in an increasingly competitive educational marketplace, and how institutions can work together internally and with industry to gain in stature and influence.

The free seminars are part of a series of events being organised by GAIN, the Growth Acceleration and Investment Network, to support business growth across the region.
