The Cube has organised a series of events to support students and graduates at every stage of your entrepreneurial journey; from an idea to a fully-fledged business. 
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.”
In term time The Cube will be holding regular student and 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.
