EIRA Start-Up Weekender


Collaborative fun filled three-day event


Friday 15th - Sunday 17th March 2019


Application deadline: 23:59 on Wednesday 20th February 2019

A weekend of outdoor adventure and entrepreneurial skills awaits you at the EIRA Start-Up Weekender. In collaboration with partner universities, The Hub for Innovation & Enterprise are offering accommodation, transport, and food at Hilltop Outdoor Centre for 3 days of teamwork, creative thinking and (maybe) saving the world!

The Hub is teaming up with UEA, Essex, Suffolk, NUA and Writtle College to deliver the EIRA Start-Up Weekender to 80 students looking for something a bit different.  Accommodation, transport and food are all included in this weekend-long event, where you’ll be asked to think entrepreneurially in teams to work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This will be an opportunity to work on idea generation and business development, with a chance to pitch for prizes with your idea. Alongside this we’ll be making the most of the Hilltop Outdoor Centre and taking part in archery, high ropes, abseiling and more! This event is free to attend, but a £15 deposit is required which will be refunded at the event.


  • Open to all students
  • Limited to 16 per university
  • Students will be selected from submitted application forms. Deadline for applying is 23:59 on Wednesday 20th February 2019.
  • A £15 deposit will be taken per student and returned upon arrival on Friday 15th March 2019
