University of Sunderland: Enterprise Challenge

University of Sunderland: Enterprise Challenge


In July 2018, PNE Enterprise delivered a two-day enterprise challenge on behalf of The Enterprise Place, University of Sunderland’s business hatchery.


“You always do a great job. I have enjoyed attending and expanding my business acumen. I will use this experience to consider my business venture. Facilitators were great.”

Aleasser Alzein, Enterprise Challenge participant and University of Sunderland student


About the Enterprise Challenge

The two-day enterprise ‘boot camp’ was created to inspire, generate ideas and to feed the pipeline of applicants interested in developing a business start-up with The Enterprise Place. Delivered for 40 students and graduates of University of Sunderland, the challenge provided “pre start-up” inspiration, information on entrepreneurship, helped attendees explore their own start-up ideas and supported them to develop their entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial skill-sets.


What we did

In delivering the Enterprise Challenge, the PNE team provided the following:

  • Tailored workshop content to meet the objectives of The Enterprise Place, including an ideas generation session, aspiration building activities and a mini start-up competition
  •  An experienced session leader, as well as additional team members to give support to the participants
  • Collected qualitative and quantitative feedback, which was provided to University of Sunderland, demonstrating the impact for class participants
