The project is a collaborative place based approach to engendering sustainable enterprise aptitudes in our students achieved through a partnership between Carmarthen Business School and Carmarthenshire County Council’s Economic Development Department. Together we have been providing students with the opportunities and support to develop confidence, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial aptitudes which will help them be the positive change agents of the future.
The collaboration, which has been formally acknowledged by a memorandum of understanding, gives students the opportunity to work on live projects, internships and research which will benefit sustainable regeneration in the county. It also offers them the opportunity to gain mentoring and advice from business advisors, develop their own business ideas and gain the confidence to grow as social entrepreneurs. The project has also enabled Carmarthen Business School and its students to contribute to real change within its community by engaging students in authentic, rather than abstract projects that benefit the region.
