flare is the University of Hertfordshire’s annual business start-up competition which supports and encourages students and alumni to launch and develop new innovative businesses.

Students from the School of Creative Arts regularly feature as winners and finalists in the flare competition.
Xultour - Best Idea Award
Xultour - A digital VR app for e-learning, advertising and tourism.
flare was educational and enjoyable. As a team we learnt how to setup a business from scratch, make a reliable business plan, and network with many different professionals. Combining our expertise, we launched Xultour together! Our secret was to try, without worrying about failing, as I say: 'If it doesn’t exist, build it!'. If we can do it, so can you.
Dinma Designs - The graphic design agency that offers services to fit your needs.
I really enjoyed my whole flare experience. It was exciting to be a finalist, in addition to meeting and networking with people.
