I just wanted to send a short newsletter out to say that I hope your exams are going well or have gone well. Even though the academic year is winding down, we have a lot on here at Cardiff University Enterprise and we hope we can see you one last time before you head off for your summer adventures. For some of you graduation is coming soon and I just wanted to remind you that our services are available to graduates for up to five years after you’ve left Cardiff. I would encourage you to stay on our mailing list as you never know when you might spot an opportunity that you want to take up. Summer events and activities include:
Take My Junk: June 12 10:00-14:00, Woodville Pub.
A chance for students to buy, sell or trade items before leaving their accommodation for the summer. Take this opportunity to get a great deal on household essentials or to make a profit on your unwanted goods.
Run in conjunction with Get it Out For Cardiff, the council will take anyway any un-sold items. We are hoping to decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills this year.

An interactive design workshop led by Georgina Campbell Flatter, Executive Director of MIT Centre Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Programme. This highly interactive workshop is for local entrepreneurs, students, businesswomen/men and other ecosystem enablers who want to foster a vibrant entrepreneurial environment across Wales. During this workshop, Georgina will share some of the most successful tools used at MIT (and within the greater Boston ecosystem) to drive innovation, from Hackathons and Prizes to Accelerators and Co-working Spaces. Then, using fun and interactive design tools, we will work together to design new, or enhance existing, programmes to augment innovation and entrepreneurship initiatives across Wales.
