Launchpad (with MA Entrepreneurship)
This is your chance to forge a tech start-up with a stipend of £16,000 (in the 2020/21 academic year), while honing your business and technical skills. Launchpad offers you paid opportunities to drive the development of a high growth potential technology start-up, while earning an MA in entrepreneurship with no attached fees.
|Course Duration||1 year|
Launchpad brings together teams of software engineers, digital creatives and business people to solve industry challenges - taking on briefs from companies like Sony and Hitachi. You’ll benefit from business support, mentoring and training. Through the MA you’ll gain knowledge in entrepreneurship, business governance, management and negotiation - coordinated with the development phase of your business. This means you’ll apply your newly acquired skills at the precise moment they’re needed, leaving as a director of a viable start-up with a full Master’s degree.
Launchpad is an innovative postgraduate incubation and acceleration programme. It is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and Research England.
