About the ‘WUTOPIA’ Westminster POP-UP
The ‘Westminster POP-UP’ is an enterprise and experiential learning project supported by the CEC’s entrepreneurship accelerator programme, and was commissioned to launch and showcase the University’s entrepreneurial designers, makers, creators and crafters.
In the lead up to the POP-UP, the students and graduates were invited to develop their entrepreneurship attributes and grow and launch their brands and businesses – with selected participants enrolling into a preparatory accelerator programme of workshops and one-to-one advisory appointments with business advisors and field experts.
Each entrepreneur has also received a grant of £250 to develop their response to the platform, in addition to a year’s membership of Creative Entrepreneurs.
