Start-up support

Access support to help develop your start-up ideas and entrepreneurial skills.

Whether you want to start your own business, develop your entrepreneurial mindset or do a bit of both, the Basecamp Enterprise team can support you in achieving your ambitions.

Basecamp are a team of start-up specialists that sit within the Careers Service at the University of Bristol. Our philosophy is that enterprise is for everyone and we have a ‘no wrong door’ approach to providing support; we are here to help with all your questions and ideas.

Our support

You will not need to take part in our full programme to benefit from a single event; choose what you do depending on your goals, ambitions, and capacity. To help you navigate, our programme is categorised into three levels:

1-to-1 Appointments

For a more in-depth discussion about your entrepreneurial ambitions or your business idea, book a one-to-one appointment with a Basecamp Adviser. 

Programmes, competitions and events

The Basecamp Enterprise team have become part of our extended team. They’ve encouraged us from day one. The recognition and support we’ve received has come at such a pivotal point and has lit the fire beneath us.
