UWL sponsor the full annual costs for graduate entrepreneurs in the first university-based business incubator in Wales.

THE first standalone university-based business incubator in Wales has been opened by a Welsh Government Minister.

The facility aims to encourage and support entrepreneurship among USW’s student graduate and alumni population, and provide a safe haven in which they can test and develop enterprising ideas.

Mr Waters said: “Our Economic Action Plan is committed to developing an entrepreneurial culture here in Wales, with a focus on supporting young people from school, college and university to make that transition to starting a business.

“The Startup Stiwdio provides sense of place for entrepreneurs and complements the wider network of hubs supported by Welsh Government in Valleys and more rural communities, alongside those within the private sector.”
