Student Enterprise and Innovation

Enabling students to develop successful graduate careers is a key strategic focus for Roehampton. An increasing number of Roehampton students go on to develop their own business or work freelance – especially across the creative and digital industries – but this can be a difficult choice for those students who lack time, knowledge and funds to develop their ideas, purchase kit, or acquire entrepreneurial skills and networks.

By supporting this fund you will enable their career aspirations to become reality. Donations can directly support student start-up businesses or provide access to specialist advice for our most entrepreneurial students. Why not be part of their success story?

Roehampton graduate Humphrey Aghoghovbia Jr won the LaunchPad competition in 2018 for his sports business Unique Skills Coaching which he launched directly after leaving university in 2015: “Winning heightened the feeling of actually being a businessman. I never viewed myself that way before. The award allowed me to look at ways to invest in my new business meaningfully and strategically. I think giving more students the licence to start, and test, businesses within the university environment is a brilliant way to go.”
