The Enterprisers Experience
A recent study of the programme's effectiveness carried out for the Cambridge-MIT Institute found that Enterprisers succeeded in developing participants' entrepreneurial skills, and increased the number of them actively considering entrepreneurship as a career option.
The proportion of participants who felt they had a "good" understanding of what it takes to start a business rose from 24.1% at the beginning of the course to 72.7% at the end. The percentage believing they had the ability to start a business more than tripled from 20.4% at the beginning of the course to 67.3% at the end.
Here are a selection of case studies on Enterprisers alumni and their start-ups.
- Sunny Kotecha - Silver Lining Coaching
- Jonathan English - Skeleton Productions
- Jesse Costelloe - Evok
- Jessamy Kelly - Juo
