In every-day terms, Enterprise means the ability to make things happen; to cope with confusing and chaotic situations and work through them to achieve success. Be this spotting an opportunity and capitalising on it, or starting a not-for-profit organisation to deal with society's problems. 

We support students at the University of York to build the skills and confidence to grow ideas and then to start a business.
