Unipreneurs

Got a viable business concept? Unipreneurs offers tools and support to students, beyond the classroom. 

We introduce young business founders to a proven, managed framework to ensure the optimum chances of investment success and post-investment profitability.

Dispel the misconception

You might be young. And you might have fairly limited entrepreneurial experience. But that doesn't mean that the doors to forming a credible business with secured financial backing are closed to you. 

Unipreneurs works with you, helping you to form concepts which a business can be based upon. Skills, knowledge, industry credibility, consultants, legal and tax advice, board members and finance naturally form around a good business idea – we manage that process for students who are interested in forming a 'spin-out' enterprise.
