Centre for Entrepreneurship Day of Entrepreneurship and Awards Ceremony  

On April 7th 2022, the Centre for Entrepreneurship will be hosting the inaugural “Day of Entrepreneurship” and CFE Entrepreneurship Awards  to celebrate and recognise the entrepreneurial achievements of students, graduates and staff across Cardiff Met.  

Entrepreneurship is embedded within the Cardiff Met “EDGE” values, which aims to empower all students to develop ethical, digital, global and entrepreneurial skills prior to graduation. At the Centre for Entrepreneurship, we recognise that significant value can be created via entrepreneurial activity; making an impact within education, the local community and the wider economy. 

There are 4 award categories to choose from, and applications will open on 14th Feb. You’ll have until 21st March to apply and winners will be announced during the awards ceremony on the 7th April. On the day, we will also be awarding one further award; Outstanding Achievement Award (nominated by the Centre for Entrepreneurship)
