The SETsquared Partnership has selected fifteen Italian students for a one-week entrepreneurship programme in the UK.
Experienced UK entrepreneurs and innovators will provide an intensive, practical course, which will help participants develop a business plan in a week combining sessions with taught lectures and small-group workshops.
The students were selected earlier this summer by SETsquared staffers Karen Brooks, Simon Bond and David Bream during a weekend bootcamp in Bard, Italy, where they developed their business ideas with seminars on “the perfect pitch”.
The weekend ended with a pitching session with the best teams being selected to attend the Bath Entrepreneurship Programme, which is run in conjunction with the University of Bath’s School of Management.
The SETsquared Partnership is the enterprise collaboration of the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey. Its services in Italy are funded by Fondazione CRT, a non-profit organization dedicated to the economical, social and cultural development of Piemonte and the Valle d’Aosta region.
