BUDDING entrepreneurs met with a Government minister for round-table discussions during his visit to the University of Hertfordshire.

Hertford MP Mark Prisk, minister for business and enterprise, met with students from the uni’s Herts Entrepreneurs society to hear some recent success stories from self-employed young people.

Natasha Webb, president of Herts Entrepreneurs, said: “We took this opportunity to share with Mr Prisk the facilities that the society and the university offer to young entrepreneurs.

“Our speaker events, networking sessions and practical workshops, combined with designated office space in the university’s incubation centre really enable students and graduates to take an idea and turn it into a viable business.”

Mr Prisk said: “I wanted to come and listen to students themselves about how the entrepreneurs’ society and the university combine to help them grow and develop their ideas into real businesses.

“There’s nothing more exciting than finding someone who has got a good idea and then turns it into a profitable venture especially at such a young age.

“It is always very inspiring.”
