This session will share the story of an entrepreneurship programme co-created between university staff and an education-tech start-up. It is a three-pronged programme involving a live problem-based social challenge weekend, a six-week mini accelerator, and an online gamified training platform. The goal of the programme is to engage students from a range of disciplines, enabling them to develop real-world skills, work on a live case study and create a tangible product or service.
