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, the Venture Adventure might just be for you. The lovely people at Santander Universities UK are giving ten lucky University of Chester students a unique opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial spirit with both business sessions and adrenaline sports 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 this August.

To take part in the Venture Adventure, all you need to do is complete a simple application form outlining your business idea and why you would benefit from the experience.

The Venture Adventure will take place from Sunday 8th to Friday 13th  August 2021.
