UNpreneur Inter-University Bootcamp / Applications Now Open!



Calling all University of Wolverhampton students and graduates who have a business idea or have already started their entrepreneurship journey!

We have a very exciting opportunity for 40 students to join the UNpreneur x SHU Inter-University Bootcamp this summer!

This EPIC 4-week Inter-University Start-Up Bootcamp will be made up of 4 engaging, interactive and (fun!) practical sessions every Wednesday in June, designed to help you supercharge progress on an existing or pre-start business idea.

There will also be dedicated weekly “UNstuck! Sessions” every Thursday in June. This is your chance to get your burning questions answered!

The Bootcamp brings together students and graduates from universities across the UK to share experiences and work on developing their business idea in a challenging and supportive environment.

What Will Be Taught During the Inter-University Bootcamp?

  • Week #1: UNderstanding Yourself – Having the right mindset is critical. It’s also essential to focus on your own goals and habits. Adaptability, resilience, and resourcefulness are key areas to master.
  • Week #2: UNderstanding Customers – A business without customers is not a business. We’ll explore how to identify what problem you are solving, and for whom. In this session, we will also cover practical sales and marketing skills.
  • Week #3: UNderstanding Business – We’ll cover the different types of company structure, from “sole traders” and “limited companies” to “social enterprises”. Money will be one of the core drivers of your success, so we’ll look at the different sources of money from idea stage to scale-up.
  • Week #4: Panel Session: Hear from other UNpreneurs! – You’ll have the opportunity to hear from other student and graduate UNpreneurs in this special panel session! What they wish they knew when they were starting out, how they overcame challenges, and what their biggest lessons were. All will be revealed in this candid final session – you won’t want to miss it!

The format for the weekly virtual sessions will be: 1-hour of teaching, followed by 1-hour focused on implementation. We really want you to take ACTION!
