Elevate Solutions is a project management and business support company offering project surgery and problem solving solutions
The Student Placements for Entrepreneurs in Education Plus (SPEED Plus) Project is run at 5 universities around the region. This ERDF part-funded project, led by the University of Wolverhampton, is aimed at giving help and support to students and graduates wishing to start their own business.
The simple idea behind SPEED Plus may not be that clever – but it is certainly revolutionary.
Each university administers their own project. Please see the Partner Universities page for their contact details.
