Andrew Cochrane is Senior Partner at Flint Bishop LLP.

We are pleased to be working with the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences on two separate projects, which aim to inspire both student entrepreneurs and undergraduates, who may have a dream or passion to pursue.

Create and Connect

Under our project banner ‘Create and Connect’, we are delighted to sponsor the Network of Entrepreneurs, which gives Derby students the chance to seek advice from some of the most respected organisations in the region.

This project enables them to have access to entrepreneurs who have first-hand experience of what they will face if they start up their own business, but who they would not ordinarily have had the opportunity to meet with.

With each student entrepreneur seeking to improve their skills, increase confidence and develop relationships, they will also have the chance of one-to-one mentoring from the region’s key players, participating in practical training workshops and attending networking events.

In addition, our legal teams are available to help create new businesses and we have a panel of solicitors on hand to support this.

Inspire and Ignite

‘Inspire and Ignite’ offers support and experience to Derby undergraduates in the world of business.

Students can pitch their ideas in order to receive support which may be financial, mentoring opportunities or personalised one-to-one advice.
