Entrepreneurs show skills in top competition

Internship - Santander will deliver a supported internship programme - SantanderCB

Bangor University student Elen Hughes has been selected to represent the institution in the UK Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards after making her way through local heats.

Elen has already set up her own gift company and is in her final year of a Welsh degree. She trades with her personalised art-work, and hopes to start selling her gifts in local shops and increase the scale of the business. 

Elen will be joined by Sunita Diaz of the Business School, who will represent the university in the ideas category for day to day products and services. 

The 25-year-old from Honduras is passionate about her model of trading coffee directly to British drinkers, which she hopes will directly benefit the growers in her home country.

The Bangor University stage of the Santander Entrepreneurship Awards is part funded by the Welsh Government to support delivery of the Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy for Wales.
