Bright-Ideas to Start Up

If you are curious about starting a business or already running one, interested in self-employment, entrepreneurship or social enterprise then this four week short course will help you develop all the knowledge and skills you need. Designed to help you get to grips with all aspects of self-employment, from defining your customer to pitching for investment.

Meet the Expert

Our monthly speakers series. Get inspired and learn from some of the UK's most distinguished entrepreneurs.

Meet the Expert takes place once a month, and is designed to provide insight into the entrepreneurial life, with an opportunity to ask question to an expert in self-employment or leadership. Each event features individuals who have been there, done it, bought the t-shirt - and they're ready to pass that t-shirt onto you!

It's an excellent opportunity to get top tips on getting started, and also to meet prospective employers or partners. Previous events have featured huge names such as Levi Roots, founder of the popular food brand, and Ratheesan Yoganathan, co-founder of Lebara! Check out the KU Extra for more information.
