On Wednesday 10 June, Southampton University students attended SETsquared’s annual Student Enterprise Awards at St. Marys Stadium, winning Best Student Enterprise, Best Graduate Enterprise, and Best Game Changing Enterprise. This year continued the success of our students at 2015’s Student Enterprise Awards.
SanEco was awarded Best Student Enterprise for their work empowering communities using sanitation. Winner of Best Graduate Enterprise was DividaBill, an innovative way of managing your bills whilst at the University. Metix Ltd won Best Game Changing Enterprise at the awards evening, for their development of a handheld vital signs monitor called COREMED® Aid.
Metix Ltd scored a double victory after additionally being awarded the coveted People’s Choice Award. The company’s marketing director, Peter Street, said:
“It’s a huge honour to be voted the People’s Choice out of all of the companies that were pitching.”
The evening was organised by SETsquared, a collaboration between the universities of Southampton, Bath, Bristol, Exeter and Surrey, supporting the growth and success of new business opportunities and bringing together top student and graduate entrepreneurs.
