Reading students show their entrepreneurial talents (UK)

Ten University of Reading students recently demonstrated their commercial acumen in the first ever Deloitte Business Planning Competition.

The competition enabled students enrolled in the university’s module The Practice of Entrepreneurship to demonstrate their entrepreneurial potential and compete for _1000 worth of prizes.

With over 100 students enrolled this year, The Practice of Entrepreneurship is one of the largest accredited, cross-disciplinary undergraduate modules in entrepreneurship in the UK.

University of Reading innovation and entrepreneurship manager Rebecca Miller said students from a wide-range of schools within the university, including business, systems engineering, languages and international relations, enrolled in the module.

“This challenging and interactive program aims to inspire students to develop their entrepreneurial capabilities and equip them with the fundamental business acumen they need to put their ideas into action,” Ms Miller said.

Students of the entrepreneurship module spent several months working hard to translate their creative ideas into solid business plans. The ten students selected to enter the final stages of the competition have undergone presentation skills training and coaching by an experienced business professional.

John Cavill, founder of both Logical Networks and Intermezzo Ventures, joined the panel of judges for the Business Planning Competition. Mr Cavill said he was impressed not only by the number of students taking the Practice of Entrepreneurship module, but also by their interest and commitment.
