Innovation Hub

The Brunel Innovation Hub aims to stimulate entrepreneurship and encourage students and graduates to turn their ideas into business. We bring together a collaborative and supportive network of successful entrepreneurs, experienced business mentors, investors and professional service providers to support the next generation of entrepreneurs to be discovered.

Support Brunel Entrepreneurs

If you are a mentor, investor or service provider with experience of supporting early stage start-ups and SME’s and feel that you can contribute to helping out in any way, then we would love to hear from you too!

For more information please contact hub@brunel.ac.uk

Mentoring

Our widening participation mentoring programme matches level 2 and 3 students from backgrounds underrepresented in universities with an experienced professional to act as a mentor.

The programme runs for six months from November to May, and is a fantastic way to help students increase their employability skills and their confidence, by practicing interview skills in a mock panel interview, experiencing real assessment centre exercises, and developing goal setting and action planning skills.

It is an ideal opportunity for employers and their employees to share their experience and knowledge with students. Join our team of over 30 public and private sector employers to give something back and continue your own professional development whilst helping a Brunel student secure the right placement, internship, and ultimately, the right graduate job.
