  • THRIVE

    At Enterprise Support, we've been working hard to create a festival dedicated to helping you realise your full potential! THRIVE Festival is open to students, recent graduates and staff who want to develop themselves, work on an idea or grow their talents.

    No matter what your ambition or career goals, we're going to be covering practical tips throughout THRIVE on developing skills and ideas that you can use in any industry or field. Through our panel events, competitions, workshops and socials we also want to bring a focus to sustainability and the need for social good, where we are here to support you and your ideas. And, we'll be walking you through everything you need to know for the FUEL Awards, our in-house idea pitching competition where you can win up to £3,000.
