Every participant will have the opportunity to have a 1-2-1 support session with the DMUworks Enterprise team following the workshops and participants who attend all three sessions will receive a Startup Resource Pack full of extra resources.


The schools are open to all DMU students and graduates, included those located overseas. You can register for either the Product-based Startup School or Service-based Startup School via the form below.
