The May Ball is a glittering black tie event, taking place in the spectacular Great Hall at Queen's. The event provides Enterprise SU with the opportunity to showcase and award our entrepreneurial students and to thank our support networks, both within Queen's and externally.

During the event, the following categories will be awarded:

  • Student Entrepreneur of the Year
  • Enterprise Educator of the Year
  • Rising Star
  • Enterprise Champion
  • People's Choice
  • Innovateher of the Year 

We offer local businesses, organisations and departments the opportunity to be involved in this celebratory event through availing of a sponsorship package.

Our 2019 sponsors were: First Trust Bank, Free'ist, Tughans, School of EEEC'sQueen's Management School and Queen's Graduates' Association. 

Last year we raised £1.6K for our event charity partner The Children's Heartbeat Trust.  This year we are supporting QUB RAG in an effort to raise money for their four partnership charities: SOS Bus NI, Nexus, MS Society and Brain Injury Matters.
