“Entrepreneurship is a big point for me. I went to a number of UK universities and asked them what they do for entrepreneurship. Swansea had the best answer out of all the universities.”

Joe, a BA Business Management student 2016-2020, launched Pilot Plus, an aviation simulator business in 2015 and the company has continued to grow during his time at Swansea University. As well as continuing his studies and running a successful business, Joe also jointly launched The Entrepreneurs' Network student society. In 2018, Joe won £2000 seed funding in Swansea University’s Big Pitch competition which has allowed him to expand his business through investment in new technology.

Joe is currently in his year out in industry.
