External Partner feedback
Enabler, Entrepreneurial Spark
“In my role with Entrepreneurial Spark I’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs and it was amazing to see the progress that the teams made during their time on the module. It was more than I’ve seen some full time entrepreneurial teams do! Helen put in a huge amount of effort to source diverse, industry based speakers which clearly had an impact on the different aspects the students were then able to bring into their work. The students were so engaged and energised at final presentations, they delivered very credible pitches from what was a total standing start just a few months ago. Helen, Mircea and the team deserve thorough congratulations for creating a truly unique learning experience.”
