European Network of Design for Resilient Entrepreneurship (ENDuRE) is an innovative approach to educating and supporting new entrepreneurs, aimed at increasing the resilience and competitiveness of European start-ups. The project has developed a holistic framework designed to help transform ideas into technically and economically viable businesses. ENDuRE brings together a cluster of forward-thinking academic institutions and companies forming an alliance to minimise the probability of failure, helping start-ups to grow quickly and overcome the ‘Valley of Death’.
We have run a series of ENDuRE workshops and promotional events at the University of Surrey, University of Pisa, and the University of Southern Denmark. Most recently, we ran a 35hr pilot programme, Digital Entrepreneurship Advanced Labs (DEAL)
, which saw 78 entrepreneurs, including a large proportion of Surrey’s previous MBA cohort, attend.
The ENDuRE project is now in its final stages to be released as a free online platform crammed full of valuable resources for today’s budding entrepreneurs. We want to take the opportunity to tell you about the ENDuRE project and how it can become an invaluable part of your MBA experience and entrepreneurial journey, home or abroad!
