people we work with
B-Enterprising aims to help students and graduates become more enterprising whether they want to be self-employed, freelance consultants or in regular employment. The B-Enterprising team at Bangor University has helped Tree Sparks by linking us with Big Ideas Wales, organising workshops and events and giving us access to lots of different competitions and resources (as well as always being up for a chat!).
