It’s all go at these days. Our new website has just launched, more dates have been added to our "Skills Connect Workshop Tour", and we are in negotiations with investors.

To say we are motivated and excited about our new website is an understatement.

Students can now link their Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, SoundCloud etc to their more detailed skills profiles. This aspect of the website allows students from across any university to find other students with the skill sets they need to work on projects or create new start-ups together. "We were getting great traction with this feature already, having the ability to now link to other accounts only further improves this feature for students." Martin Hedley, Co-Founder & CEO.

We are also delighted to announce that more dates have been added to our “Skills Connect Workshop Tour”. We will be running our workshop about student entrepreneurship and social enterprise at Coventry University on 13th April and at the University of Cumbria on 10th May. These workshops are being funded by the Spark Award we won from Unltd, to inspire other students to get involved in social entrepreneurship.

Martin Hedley, “It is fantastic to be able to speak to other students across the country about our story and to break down some barriers about what it takes to be an entrepreneur and hopefully inspire them to take their ideas forward.”

Sylvia Grainger, Student Enterprise Coordinator at the University of Cumbria said “ We are excited to be working with and look forward to the event on the 10th May, when some of our enterprising students can hear more about how to get involved in this project. Over the years we have had some successful student entrepreneurs and it is great to continue to build on this.

At these workshops, will also be looking for students who have an idea for a social enterprise. As Do It For Real volunteers with UnLtd (, we are looking to find, fund and support another student entrepreneur with £500 and mentoring. “It is great to have Martin on board with Do It For Real, a pioneering programme to enable young people to support other budding young social entrepreneurs. Martin has worked with UnLtd for a number of years and we have seen him go from strength to strength, so it’s powerful to see him passing on his skills to another young person.” – Kamran Rashid, Do It For Real Volunteer Manager.

Martin Hedley said: “I know how much it can mean when someone backs your initial idea, gives you that belief and support to take it forward. To be able to do that ourselves is a fantastic way to give something back.”

Harriet Elvidge, Social Enterprise Development Officer at Coventry University said: “We are delighted to host a Skills Connect workshop and to have Martin come and speak to our community. We are always looking for new ways to empower enterprising students, and we’re thrilled to strengthen links with Martin sets a brilliant example and his story will surely inspire others to take action.”
