WES Activities

WES activities include lecture series, idea hub practicality, Case studies, workshops, market research, visits to start-up companies, pitches, a panel discussion on various enterprising topics including start-up scars and failures as well as fostering collaborations and building businesses when needed.

WES is special in the sense that we can tap into the community and proximity that college life offers to students and be able to engage in activities with much flexibility and faster response and decision making while building a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem.  

To be your own boss and build solutions to real-world problems with like minds,  join/partner with Wolfson Entrepreneurs Society.

The ability to revive these ‘ghosts of adaptations past’ could prove beneficial for populations living in a changing world.
