Anglia Ruskin University pledge to SOA Business Winners
From 2023, the winners of the Soldiering On Awards Business Start-Up, Business Scale-Up, and Business Community Impact Awards, will become Entrepreneurs in Residence at Anglia Ruskin University.
The Entrepreneurs in Residence (EiR) will have the chance to work with students on projects, share their lived experience, feature this post on their CVs, and will receive expenses.
X-Forces Enterprise CEO, Ren Kapur MBE, welcomed the news saying:
“We’re thrilled to bring this extraordinary opportunity to successful entrepreneurs from the Armed Forces community. Not only will the EiRs benefit hugely from the experience, they will also be able to share the stories of their own careers and enterprise journeys, thus inspiring the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.”
Professor Gary Packham, Pro Vice Chancellor Student Enterprise & Entrepreneurship, commented:
“ARU is delighted to be associated with the Soldiering on Awards, recognising the critical role small businesses play in our economy and local communities. We are excited to be able to offer these Entrepreneur in Residences to the winners of these categories.
“They will be excellent role models and help inspire the next generation of graduate entrepreneurs to transform lives, business and society.”
