The idea and business plan was created and pitched by the VP Sports, and is a project that ties in student entrepreneurs with the UWE’s ‘healthy university’ agenda.

On Monday 2 April, nine students’ unions pitched to a panel of highly regarded business executives in the style of the popular television programme Dragons’ Den.

The business will be developed and ready to start trade as of September 2012.
