University role for tycoon
Rasul returns as resident entrepreneur
The new ambassadorial and mentoring role has been created within the Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network to inspire and nurture the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
Mr Rasul, who is a Strathclyde graduate himself, will offer a weekly drop-in clinic for emerging Strathclyde entrepreneurs seeking guidance on their ideas, and leveraging his experience as a former member of the BBC’s online Dragons’ Den.
Fiona Ireland, head of enterprise at the university, said: “Shaf is an excellent example of a Strathclyde graduate who has demonstrated considerable success – and as entrepreneur in residence, he will provide an invaluable and enduring link to the world of business for our emerging entrepreneurs.
“He has played a leading role in advising, mentoring and inspiring our Business School students for many years.”
