Do you have an exciting business idea that you are ready to take to the next level but need some support that is a little bit different?

If so, our Venture Adventure sponsored by Santander Universities UK might just be for you.

In 2021 ten lucky University of Chester students competed for a place and enjoyed a unique opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial spirit with both business sessions and adrenaline sports. This was at the famous mountaineering venue of Plas Y Brenin, National Outdoor Centre, in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. The Venture Adventure aims to develop entrepreneurial thought and action, helping to turn business ideas into a reality, through a memorable mix of interactive talks and activities including kayaking, open boating, stand-up paddle boarding, raft building, indoor and outdoor climbing and abseiling.
