Since 2004 the University of Worcester has operated an Enterprise Calendar of events that seek to inform and inspire staff and students to engage in entrepreneurial activities. Over 830 individuals have engaged in our annual Enterprise Festival, Enterprise Training workshops, Business Ideas Competition ('BizCom'), Worcester Innovators Network ('WIN') – our student enterprise society – and Student Placements for Entrepreneurs in Education ('SPEED'). All of these activities have been funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England through their Higher Education Innovation Fund. These case studies consider the effect and impact of this programme of support upon a diverse selection of entrepreneurial students.
