Funded intrapreneurial student placements available for SMEs

Funded intrapreneurial student placements available for our SMEs

Our incubation hub, SETSquared Surrey is running a new Intrapreneurial Knowledge Exchange Enterprise Pathway (IKEEP) programme.

IKEEP matches SME’s, CIC’s and charities with interdisciplinary teams of three pre-trained intrapreneurial students from the University of Surrey to help provide fresh insight into business challenges or to initiate back burner projects.

IKEEP is particularly well-suited for organisations that are established beyond the start-up stage and have a project theme to solve based around ‘sustainability, internationalisation, collaboration or the female perspective’.

Based on preference and availability, projects will run on an intensive basis over 2 weeks, or flexibly within 4 weeks (either way totaling 210 hours of effort across 3 students).  The student placements are at no cost to the organization as IKEEP directly pays a stipend to the students (undergraduate and postgraduate) upon completion of a project.

There are only 15 business placements. Contact Kate Bray on or register your interest with a project brief outline.
