Entrepreneurship Advancement Programme

Supporting Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship Advancement Programme

This programme is designed to support freelancers, micro-businesses and potential small and medium sized businesses creators. Over 50 participants went through the four-module EAP beta test in the second semester of the 2018/19 academic year.

About the Programme

The Entrepreneurship Advancement Programme (EAP) is a free, regular schedule of classes which consists of four distinct evening modules delivered in the Innovation Station in the Sir Ian Wood Building on the RGU Garthdee campus from 18:00-20:00. Over the four evenings participants will learn the basics of value proposition development, product-market fit development and the different options for creating, developing or running a new business and the business model involved.

Programme Requirements

If you are interested in getting involved, but are not sure if it is right for you, these are some audiences the sessions are tailored for:

  • Students or alumni who may want to work-for-themselves during or after university – this could be as a freelancer or working in the ‘gig’ economy
  • Students or alumni who are currently working in a Small or Medium Enterprise (SME) or want to create a small business in the future.
  • RGU staff who have or are working on developing 'commercial' projects within the University - what we would refer to as 'Intrapreneurship'
  • Participants who may want to do a startup (team-based, scaleable) in the future, and might enter the RGU Accelerator at some future point.
