Enhancing Entrepreneurship provides students and graduates of Wrexham Glyndwr University with a range of opportunities to help develop their enterprise skills or to support them in starting a new business. Whether you're interested in starting a business, freelancing or being your own boss, the Enhancing Entrepreneurship team is here to help.
We offer events across the year organised both internally and in collaboration with external partners. Events range from short one hour sessions to full day conferences and include topics of interest to those at all stages of self-employment or just wanting to develop their entrepreneurial skills. To keep up to date with our latest events follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter, or sign up for our newsletter.

Students and graduates can access one to one business start-up support to help develop ideas, discuss steps and possible funding for self-employment, or discuss how to grow an existing business.
This is a bookable service on specific dates throughout the year. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book your meeting
