BETA is an extracurricular Enterprise Programme for University of Plymouth students who aspire to enhance their enterprise and professional skills and potentially start a new enterprise.
BETA will give you the opportunity to put your entrepreneurial abilities to practice via workshops, talks, mentoring and networking. The BETA Enterprise Programme will engage you in the process of developing a start-up concept and turning it into a viable business entity; however, having a business idea is not pre-requisite of attendance. If you do not wish to develop a start-up you can still take part, picking and choosing BETA sessions which will contribute to your professional development and CV.
