The Innovation Hub is expanding. Building on successful events in the past 2 years, the third installment of the Innovation Hub will occur next year. The concept is slightly changing into more of a ‘social’ incubator wherein we will run talks, workshops and activities surrounding social entrepreneurship in our Innovation Hub Programme. During this time like-minded individuals can work together to conceptualise new social enterprises, and already existing projects can hone their skills. At the end of this process, teams can enter the Innovation Hub to pitch their projects to a panel of judges to be awarded funds from the Enactus Warwick Grant.
The PM will be responsible for the successful implementation of the Innovation Hub. This means managing a team and delegating tasks, recruiting team members next academic year, planning the curriculum of the Innovation Hub Programme, networking with other societies and organisations to host workshops and sessions and overseeing the logistics of the end event.

Key Skills: Teamwork, Flexibility, Hardworking
We aim to provide a quick, easy and convenient way for students to rent nice-to-have items ranging from party speakers to coffee makers, products normally not affordable to students. To achieve this, we utilize an Instagram page decorated with pictures of products available to rent. Our project is particularly useful to exchange students, who only spend a shortened time at the university and so normally wouldn’t buy these items. This platform acts as an initiative to improve the quality of student’s lives, making items more accessible and decreasing the upfront spending costs of university life. All profits raised go toward the Enactus Warwick Grant, which funds projects with a social impact.
