Among these were medical engineering student Ross Ward (pictured top right), winner of a £10,000 Build It award to develop a prototype for a device that will help with stroke rehabilitation, and law student Sana Shafi (pictured top middle), who used the East London Social Hack bootcamp to develop her idea of a community legal advice service.
This year the enterprise programme has engaged over 1300 students through our events including the Makers Market, the East London Social Hack and 3 Day Start Up weekends. 30 students have taken part in InQUBEate, our start-up incubator that offers training and mentoring to students and graduate entrepreneurs. 90 students have developed or launched new business ideas via our bootcamps or incubator, and 19 of these students have been awarded a total of £54,000 to seed fund their business ideas.
