Rural Growth Hub – Ambleside


In my last blog I mentioned the Business Interaction Centre in Carlisle which students can use to study, attend the different workshops or network with businesses. In addition to this the University Of Cumbria also have a Rural Growth Hub which is based on our Ambleside campus.

This hub located in a fantastic part of Cumbria provides workspace for new and existing businesses and also has hot desk space. Working with the team down in Ambleside we are pulling together a package for University Of Cumbria graduates who are considering starting a business and want a place to work and develop their business idea – let me know if this is of interest or if you would like a tour and I can arrange this for you.

There is lots of help and support if you are looking to start a business and this can really make the difference to you, There will also be different ‘enterprise’ workshops taking place in the new academic year in Ambleside, if you want to go on a mailing list so that you can be sent details as they are available, again let me or the careers team know.
