Former student wins Grazia 02 Innovation Award

21 Sep 2007

Get your own business idea off the ground with HE Certificate of Enterprise

Jayne Lawton, former Certificate of Higher Education in Enterprise student, has won Grazia magazine's Most Innovative New Product with her course project Grobox. Jayne's business acumen also earned her second place in the Grazia 02 Businesswoman of the Year award. The innovative design of Grobox gardens means that all people have to do is sink the exclusive Grobox into the soil, whether in a garden or container, water, then sit back and appreciate the perfume of the flowers as they grow and watch it return every year getting bigger and better.

If you are interested in following in Jayne's footsteps the Certificate of Higher Education in Enterprise enables you to develop the knowledge and skills you need to get a business idea off the ground. Based in state-of-the-art new business development facilities you will learn everything you need to know about business creation from idea generation to full realisation. There are no prerequisites for the course except for a strong desire to start your own business.

The course runs on a Thursday evening and is open to all staff and students. All applicants are eligible to apply for up to £200 funding and all Manchester graduates get a 20% loyalty discount on the fee.
