Enterprise by Design

Be inspired, creative, sustainable, solvent and convincing:

Bangor University has cut through traditional academic boundaries to bring students from different subjects together to compete in multi-disciplinary teams for an 'Enterprise by Design' challenge with a winning prize of £2,500.

Students studying Psychology, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Product Design, Business and Creative Studies & Media were challenged to design a new product or experience for Zip World, a company which has a range of adventure sites locally, boasting the world's fastest zip line, the first four person zip line and a unique network of underground trampolines in disused slate caverns. Following a 9 week series of intensive workshops focussing on inspiration, creativity, sustainability and commercial awareness the multidisciplinary teams of students 'pitched' their new ideas to an expert panel.

The winning team was awarded £2,500 and were all offered paid employment by Zip World, so impressed were they by their professionalism and innovative thinking.
