16 November 2014 - 1:22 pm Who wants to be an Entrepreneur?

This is a question that we seem to ask quite a bit here at USE.  However, in an up and coming event you will be able to ask a group of people who have been there and done that, why they became an entrepreneur. What are the advantages and disadvantages of working for yourself and my favourite question- what they think is their biggest achievement? Continue reading “Who wants to be an Entrepreneur?” »

8 November 2014 - 2:04 pm Cupcakes to enterprise

During my recent blog training at USE we were presented with three pictures: Dracula, a cupcake with candle in it, and a group shot of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ cast.

We were asked to talk about how each of these related to enterprise. Initially I was like, “what? I have no idea.” But the more I thought of it, the more ideas started flooding in. Continue reading “Cupcakes to enterprise” »

25 August 2014 - 10:04 am BORED.

So, you have finished your course for the year (or forever), been away for a few weeks with family or friends and you have nothing planned till September. You have come to the realisation that you can watch too much Jeremy Kyle and that your reading list for next year on Quantum Mechanics is (long pause) epic (not). What can you do over the summer?

21 August 2014 - 3:58 pm Lego is AWESOME

Everyone loves Lego right? I think I have become obsessed with Lego ever since I was born (ok I might have had Duplo for the first couple of years), I think it might be that the only thing that stops you from building is your imagination or in my case running out of bricks.  Continue reading “Lego is AWESOME” »

29 July 2014 - 10:51 am Summer Break?

This year has flown past so fast, it seems so strange that we are already running all our summer activities. Here at USE, it is as busy as ever…

We have got Enactus working at the zone, every day. Besides getting ready for the trip to Beijing for the Enactus World Cup, they are currently working on a new social project that will be operating in Zambia. So, there is loads of brainstorming, scoping out of their new ideas and prototyping going on. Continue reading “Summer Break?” »
