What kind of things can I get involved in?

Activities in the past have included Pizza parties, networking evenings, hair and beauty evenings, various fundraising events including selling ‘pants’!

All activities are arranged by students and we are always looking for new ideas!

I'm not business minded and don't want to have my own business, can I still get involved?

Maybe your skills lie in social media? We always need someone on hand to handle our PR, or maybe you like crunching numbers and could look after our finances? You don’t need to be business minded to join our society and it’s a great way to meet new friends!

What's in it for me?

Other than the range of great skills you will gain, the meeting new friends and doing something you enjoy we’ll also give you access to

  •          VIP competitions
  •          funding to start a new business
  •          some amazing contacts in the region

You could also represent Gateshead College and Northern Stars at external events such as entrepreneurial festivals or even on a trip to London!

Join today and show the world what you are made of!
