EDINBURGH University is set to host a series of events to promote staff and student entrepreneurship.

The events, which include a £1000 competition to pitch new business ideas, will encourage enterprising staff and students to come up with new ways of turning their ideas into commercial realities.

The campaign is part of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012.

The events, which run until Sunday, are supported by the Scottish Institute for Enterprise (SIE), LAUNCH.ed – the university’s free service for student entrepreneurs – and the university’s Entrepreneurship Club.

LAUNCH.ed innovation project officer Hilary Singer Roberts said: “We’re really excited to put on such a diverse programme.”
