The Enterprise Shed: Making Ideas Happen

Newcastle University via FutureLearn

This course may be unavailable.



Are you passionate about something that you’d like to change? Or, have you ever wanted to change something, but didn’t know how to make it happen?

If these questions resonate with you join us on a four-week journey.

Meet other thinkers and doers

On this course, you’ll meet a whole bunch of thinkers and doers; those just starting out, makers, tinkerers and experienced entrepreneurs.

Sharing your ideas with them and other learners will encourage you to have more confidence, to think more, and to do more to create change and solve problems in your world.

“The insight I gained in your course has really altered the way I look at things. I now look for need.” - Alina, a previous learner on the Enterprise Shed.

Together we will explore entrepreneurial mindsets, consider where ideas come from and take steps to switch on your creativity, enabling you to create, develop and share your ideas.

You’ll get the chance to make meaning of the problems you experience, find the confidence to do something with an idea you already have, or address challenges that impact on you or those around you, no matter how big or small.

Where do you have your best ideas?

We all have places where we do our best thinking and doing. A park bench? A run? A workshop? A shed?

In our online shed we recreate that atmosphere, enabling you to unlock and explore your ideas, and make them happen.

You can find out more in Katie Wray’s post for the FutureLearn blog: “Why should you join us in The Enterprise Shed?”

If you’re looking for a simple solution, want to set up a social enterprise, initiate a community project, start a new business venture, or just to be part of this community, join us in The Enterprise Shed.
