The Cambridge Entrepreneurship Centre last night scooped the Cambridge Evening News Business Training award for 2001.
A welcome preliminary to the official launch
The award, sponsored by Anglia University, recognises the sterling efforts of the CEC since its establishment in late 1999.
Tim Minshall, Programme Director of the CEC, commented 'This is excellent news for the University. This award highlights our commitment to supporting science and technology based entrepreneurship throughout the region. We want to help cement Cambridge's reputation as a high tech and entrepreneurial leader in Europe.'
Dr Minshall also had a special mention for Cambridge University Entrepreneurs, one of the runners up in the category, 'I think it is a fantastic achievement for a student organisation to be nominated for this prestigious award. The CUE business plan competition this year was a resounding success and it can only be a matter of time before some great new businesses will emerge.'
The Cambridge Entrepreneurship Centre will be officially launched today. Dr Hermann Hauser will be unveiling a plaque in a ceremony at the centre.
This will be followed by a gala reception for 200 guests at the Judge Institute of Management.
The Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School aims to inspire, enable and research entrepreneurship.
