The Enterprise Challenge 2020

January 6, 2020

Challenge your mind-set. Test your Creativity. Innovate.

What it’s all about

The Enterprise Challenge (TEC) is Edinburgh Napier University’s two-week entrepreneurial exchange programme. It is open to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students across all disciplines. The programme takes place over two weeks – week one being spent in the Technische Hoschule Mittelhessen (THM) in Giessen, Germany, and week two in Edinburgh Napier University’s Craiglockhart Campus.

The programme will feature a combination of learning and teamwork, with the week in Giessen focusing on learning how to start a business, while the week in Edinburgh will involve working alongside local entrepreneurs on their business growth challenges.

The Enterprise Challenge is here to help you build an entrepreneurial mindest and provide you with experience that will be relevant to your life post study – regardless of what you choose to do after graduation. We are firm believers that engaging in this programme during your time at university will give you the confidence and experience required to stand-out from your peers. Not to mention the chance to build lifelong friendships along the way!


If you are an undergraduate, academic credit is also available, depending on your programme requirements. Please make sure you check with your programme leader first.
