Starting a business
If you are thinking of starting your own business or working for yourself, Campus Enterprise Opportunities (CEO) can help provide you with the right advice and guidance to get your business off the ground.
From lingerie design to festival taxis, hard work and dedication means hundreds of innovative ideas from DMU students and graduates have flourished into successful businesses with the help of CEO.
CEO’s events help to increase your business start-up knowledge and provide valuable inspiration to develop your idea, whatever type of business you are looking to start.
Getting involved with CEO isn’t just about starting a business. It is also about developing enterprising skills that could help you stand out from the crowd when you are starting out in the world of work.
DMU graduate Charlie Evans set up her own business with the support of DMU. Her story was recently featured in top magazine, The Economist, which revealed how DMU graduates are helping Leicester match London for new business success.
Business of the Month
Founded by Design Crafts graduate Claire Danielle Sherriff, CDS Gallery & Studio supports UK talent by sourcing work independently from British artists and makers.
During her final year at De Montfort University, Danielle entered the Business Venture Competition and won the Creative Award which was sponsored by Creative Leicestershire. "It was incredibly beneficial as not only was I awarded £1000 to help with the set up of my studio, I also benefited from help from the CEO team at DMU and Creative Leicestershire, who sponsored my award."
