Design, make, sell

Ever wanted to be involved in a creative project at your university? We’re giving you the opportunity to DESIGN to a brief, MAKE a product and SELL it to your local community? And keep your profits!

For the third year running, Design Make Sell is brought to you by NACUE, Anglia Ruskin University and your very own enterprise society from the end of October until December 2019. You're invited to join us as we turn an idea into reality and make new friends.

You’ll have the opportunity to be involved in practical, knowledge-building sessions around networking, generating new ideas, designing your customer's experience journey and perfecting your pitch. Develop your designs into a real products over the course of a weekend, and gain practical experience as you sell and interact with real customers.

It was awesome! It has been brilliant to learn about how possible it is to take your ideas and put these into the industry; it has made me realise that the boundaries are a lot bigger than you thought when it comes DMS
