From module to mainstream

module-to-mainstreamI spend a good part of my time teaching on Rise Up’s own module and other enterprise focussed modules across the university. This year I have seen some amazing business ideas emerging from teams of students

  • Dental gum using a new technology to fight decay
  • Rubbish bin that rewards its users
  • Apps of many kinds
  • Culturally sensitive ad agency

Often these ideas that begin in the classroom form the seed of a potential future business and a previously unthought-of option for the students involved. It is a real option – you could just forget about fighting it out at the self-assessment centres and see if you could make a module idea work for you.

I am always happy to speak to students developing business ideas as part of their course and if they want to move things on from module to mainstream Rise Up is here to help.

Thinking about your modules for next year? Take a look at NCL2100…. (DW)
