Play It Labs

Play games to enhance your enterprise skills!

Next week we will be hosting the first ever ‘Play It’ Lab. Play It Labs are facilitated sessions that aim to help you learn more about enterprise¬† and develop your entrepreneurial skills through playing games. We have a whole stash of games, covering a range of topics from IP to cashflow, to scaling up your start-up. The games are designed to convey transferable real-life concepts in a fun way for those who don’t necessarily have a lot of experience or knowledge around business.

Sessions will be fun and relaxed and an ideal opportunity to meet other like-minded, enterprising students from across the University.

In you would like to attend a session, please book on via Target Connect.
