3D Design and Craft BA(Hons) graduate Tom Meades was one of five University of Brighton visited 10 Downing Street to discuss student entrepreneurship.
Tom was one of the finalists in a University of Brighton ‘bright ideas’ contest winning 2nd prize with his Bluetooth speaker from recycled plastic. He has also co-launched Gomi.design which aims to turn rubbish into useful products.
The students met Government business advisor Jimmy McLoughlin on the invitation of Enterprise Nation, the business support tool available free to all student and graduate entrepreneurs from the University.
The students discussed their product/business ideas which qualified them as finalists in the competition, managed by the University’s Enterprise Team within the Careers Service and which aims to reward innovation and turn good ideas into reality.
The five finalists later pitched their business ideas to a panel of judges from the local business community.
The students have been helped by Beepurple, the university’s entrepreneurship support service.
