Trinity Hall Entrepreneurs Network

Trinity Hall Entrepreneurs Network (THEN)

Trinity Hall’s Entrepreneurs Network has been launched to encourage entrepreneurship amongst Trinity Hall members, compliment the work of the University Enterprise Network and raise the profile of the College through increasing engagement with the sphere of innovation and entrepreneurship.

THEN aims to:

  • increase student awareness of entrepreneurship by promoting University enterprise events and competitions, as well as hosting events in College which promote entrepreneurship.
  • provide support for students, postdocs and alumni looking to commercialise their ideas. This support is both financial through grants from the Experiencing Entrepreneurship Fund and the award from the Lee-Yung Family Fund for entrepreneurship; and practical support, through advice via the careers directory, access to a network of like-minded alumni and a mentoring scheme.

Alumni will be welcome to events in College and can join a virtual network of like-minded entrepreneurs. To join the entrepreneurs network visit your profile on www.THalumni.net and check the relevant boxes on the carer network section of your business profile.
