Congratulations to all our nominated students and staff for this year’s Celebrate Enterprise. Out of the many nominations the Enterprise department received a shortlist was formed. Projects such as CanAdvice, a virtual care system for cancer patients and WBTA (Welcome back to Africa), which is a social enterprise which aims to create a student network to work on the development of education in Africa, were just some of the amazing projects thriving in Kingston University.

Two visiting entrepreneurs, Charles Irving and Vince Tallent gave fantastic motivational speeches on passion and what makes a good entrepreneur.
