Hi, I’m Andy and welcome to my first blog post!
As somebody who has been working in the Enterprise Education sector for the past 12 years, I have been fortunate enough to work with some fantastic professionals and brilliant young entrepreneurs.
As time has moved forward, I have wanted to start to blog about my experiences within the sector, the thoughts and views of others and the general developments in all things enterprise.
Firstly, a little about myself. My name is Andy Firr and I am married to Gemma. I have a little girl and we live in Wirral, a few miles from my place of birth Liverpool.
For a great many years, the sector of enterprise and entrepreneurship has been of great interest to me. I have been that person who has in their back bedroom built several small businesses. These have ranged far and wide, from chutneys to Vietnamese coffee, football stickers to educational resources, its been an interesting journey!
I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries on my enterprise journey including Belgium, Finland, Latvia and Vietnam.
My current role primarily allows me to support young entrepreneurs from Universities and Colleges around the UK as Start Up Manager at the Young Enterprise organisation. It’s a great position and I get to work with some fantastic professionals from a huge range of industries.
Over the coming months I’ll be sharing industry insights, my own thoughts about the sector and moving forward providing resources that you can hopefully use with colleagues.
The blog is for all and anybody interested in enterprise, ented, innovation, new venture and start up.
I would LOVE to hear from you if you have articles you wish to share, thoughts or opinions.
