Hello I'm Matt!
As a second year Entrepreneurship student at Lancaster I have massively enjoyed having the UIF programme as a practical portal to channel the theoretical concepts that my degree gives me.
My mission for the next two years is to create the Lancaster Startup community where ultimately students have a viable option to create/work in start ups whilst they're at uni and once they graduate rather than being just limited to entering graduate schemes for massive corporations.
Being a UIF changemaker on campus will be a huge part of building this start up community.
My UIF project is all about alumni engagement with students business ideas/projects. Currently there is no structure for influential alumni to help support student ventures and so I plan to create a termly series of video pitches that are then sent to alumni who can offer their advice, support and resources.
I can't wait to be officially working on our projects!
