Innovation Award Winners 2019

Award winners are supported by the Bath Alumni to develop their ideas into viable businesses, encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs. Through these awards we aim to encourage a culture of change across the University, with students seeing an aspiration to become an entrepreneur as a clear and viable career choice. With the help of the SETsquared network and award winning business incubation programme, the scheme aims to help launch businesses which have the potential for truly global impact. In 2019 there were three winners of the bursary award and you can follow their inspiring entrepreneurial journeys below.
