Propeller Student Enterprise

Supported by

The Propeller Student Enterprise service supports current students, staff and graduates across all faculties and services to become “business ready”, whether you're working for yourself or someone else.

This service offers skills workshops, online resources, 1-2-1 support from business mentors, and interaction with a community of local businesses who work from the Propeller Hub.

For those who are developing a business idea, we offer workshops and online content designed to help you test the viability of your idea, build business acumen and start trading. Current students and recent graduates (within the last 3 years) can also benefit from 1-2-1 support with a business mentor.

For existing business owners, we provide a range of business growth workshops. Trading businesses can also make use of our paid hot desks and dedicated rental desks within the incubation space in the Media Factory.
