Develop your enterprise skills!

The Big Pitch is a competition designed by the Enterprise Team at Swansea University to raise awareness of entrepreneurship and develop entrepreneurial skills.

Download the Big Pitch poster here.

Whether students have a business idea or feel that they have entrepreneurial traits, they are able to pitch their idea or “themselves” to a panel of esteemed judges.

What are these Entrepreneurial Skills?

Creativity, innovation, resilience, self awareness, self management, problem solving, analytical thinking, leadership, team work and communication =  highly valued by today’s employers

  • However, the CBI (the voice of business)  state that 70% of graduates don’t leave university with the skills to be effective and impact their company.
  • Our aim is to change behaviours & attitudes, preparing students for a global world of uncertainty, industry shakes up and a competitive labour market.
