Bridge 2 Business is all about "Inspiring, Connecting and Supporting" students into business and this recent project with NC Product Design students at City of Glasgow College certainly encompasses all of these aims.
The five groups of students were all inspired by Andy Murray Design at the launch of the project in January. They have since had the support of both Andy and Kelly from Bridge 2 Business whilst each group worked with their £25 Bridge 2 Business grant on developing their design ideas. Six weeks later, Andy returned to hear the pitches from the students and to judge and give feedback on each of the products designed.
Andy was very impressed by the end results and the attitude of the students and hopes that a number of them will apply for further support from Bridge 2 Business in the months ahead.
It was fantastic to see them develop their business skills and show such entrepreneurial flair whilst at the same time raising money for local charities.
