Kingston Business School's Bright Ideas Programme
The dedicated start-up programme, Bright Ideas, has a long history of success. Starting off as a competition, it now offers a series of dedicated support workshops and mentoring for a period of 12 months or longer. The summer intensive programme is held over two months, supporting students to plan to take their ideas to the market. Students then have the chance to join a co-working space with hot desking, 1-2-1 mentoring and workshops for a reasonable fee, or in return for offering 13 hours per month support to the university.
