We are helping individuals in decision-maker roles in high growth UK based technology and engineering companies to develop their leadership skills.
Places on the programme are gained through a competitive application process, with the best applicants awarded a place on the programme and membership of the Enterprise Hub for life.
We believe connections should be built to last, so participants can expect a lifetime of support through connection to an exceptional community of engineers and innovators, including our mentors, over 260 Enterprise Hub members and Fellows of the Academy.
