This is your chance to forge a tech start-up with a £16,000 stipend/salary, while honing your business and technical skills. Launchpad offers you paid opportunities to drive the development of a high growth potential technology start-up, while earning an MA in entrepreneurship with no attached fees.

Introduction

Launchpad brings together teams of software engineers, digital creatives and business people to solve industry challenges - taking on briefs from companies like Sony and Hitachi. You’ll benefit from business support, mentoring and training. Through the MA you’ll gain knowledge in entrepreneurship, business governance, management and negotiation - coordinated with the development phase of your business. This means you’ll apply your newly acquired skills at the precise moment they’re needed, leaving as a director of a viable start-up with a full Master’s degree.

What you'll learn

You'll not only gain an MA in Entrepreneurship, you'll be supported to emerge as a founder of a high-growth digital business. Launchpad is a business incubation and development programme, helping you grow your expertise in markets, customers, investors, and how a business works.

You’ll put relevant business and management knowledge into practice, including finance, sales and marketing. Using reflective practice, you’ll explore project management techniques and build your leadership skills. And by looking into communication strategies in different media, you’ll get a better idea of your role in a team and develop your interpersonal skills.

Backing up your expertise, you’ll research modern business and management issues and practices, and evaluate information, business areas and working methods. Finally, you’ll analyse, evaluate and apply creative ideas, so you can come up with original solutions to complex problems.
