​​​Students at the University of Northampton are being challenged set up a business to solve a social problem – using just £10.

The popular Changemaker £10 Social Enterprise Challenge is being run throughout January by the University’s Changemaker Hub.

The challenge sees groups of students given £10 to start their own social enterprise which addresses a social problem on campus or in the local community, and try to make as much money from the £10 as possible

Students Laura Youens and Sam Dorywala took part in the October 2015 Changemaker £10 Social Enterprise Challenge; they founded the Kids on Campus social enterprise, which organises fun days for student parents and their children to enjoy at the University of Northampton. Find out more about their story​.
