Yorkshire’s Graduate Entrepreneurship Project has appointed Colin Harrison, the former director of ICT consultancy Electroville, as project manager.

Mr Harrison will be responsible for the day to day management of the project, co-ordinating the region’s universities in working together to support Yorkshire’s student and graduate entrepreneurs.

The ERDF funded project is based at the University of Huddersfield and brings together Yorkshire’s ten higher education institutions to promote and support entrepreneurship amongst the region’s student and graduate population.

Colin has a background in IT for further education establishments and research and evaluation within the public sector. He takes up his role on Monday 4th November.

He said:

“Yorkshire’s universities provide exceptional support to the region’s entrepreneurial students and graduates.

“I’m looking forward to helping the partner institutions develop Yorkshire’s next generation of business leaders.”

Mr Harrison’s appointment follows the departure of Louise Bermingham, who recently took up the role of project manager with the Yorkshire Innovation Fund.
