Royal Holloway Entrepreneurs, the student enterprise society of Royal Holloway, University of London, has won a major national award for a second year running.
The 2,000 member-strong organisation scooped the 2011 Venture Creation Catalyst Award for its effectiveness in motivating and guiding students to start their own enterprises. The award was made at a glittering ceremony in central London hosted by the National Consortium of University Entrepreneurs (NACUE).
In 2010 the society was made the first NACUE New Society of the Year and its avowed mission is to ‘encourage, support and inspire every student to take the steps needed to create successful ventures.’
Luka Blackman-Gibbs, President of Royal Holloway Entrepreneurs said, “We’re incredibly proud to have been recognised for fulfilling our promise for the students of Royal Holloway. I am delighted that we have again been recognised as one the UK’s most successful enterprise societies. Our students at Royal Holloway are increasingly proving that they are serious about their business ideas, and we have triumphed in our ability to support these students. It’s incredibly touching to be recognised by NACUE for all of our hard work.’
With Royal Holloway Entrepreneurs already planning a series of inspiring events for 2011/12, this society will continue to be one to watch.
