The Cube has organised a series of events to support students and graduates to become budding entrepreneurs and to start up their own businesses. 

If you're interested in attending a session, then please book your place using the links below or via myCareer and search for The Cube Events .

Recent feedback on the support includes: “What The Cube is doing is phenomenal. The deep insights that speakers bring to the webinars really help. The team that is selecting the speakers is doing a great job. Before Plymouth, I had spent 3-4 years in the entrepreneurship space and finding this type of realistic and practical insight is tough. I learned a great deal about entrepreneurship, thanks to The Cube.”

The Cube will be holding regular Student & Graduate Drop In sessions in the Careers and Employability Hub, Charles Seale-Hayne Library - why not drop in and see what support we can offer.
