Many universities either own, or are investing in, student co-working spaces that are designed to be a haven for budding entrepreneurs.
Designed to be a catalyst for the next generation of businesses, higher education institutes are pouring significant amounts of cash into incubator spaces and hot-desking facilities desperately hoping for the next Zuckerberg or Musk to emerge (bad examples, we know).
But this raises three important questions:
1. How effective are they?
2. What benefits do they produce?
3. And the million dollar question: How many students actually use them?
Hear from a panel of enterprise staff from across the EEUK community on how they view co-working spaces, how busy they really are, and – for those with successful spaces – the steps they took to ensure it became the hub they wanted it to.
