Entrepreneur lends a hand to fellow students


Nitesh Patel has just completed a BA (Hons) Video and Film Production and has launched his own business, Adapt Productions.

The 23-year-old received support from the University’s Student Placements for Entrepreneurs in Education West Midlands (SPEED WM) programme, which helps students to launch their own business alongside their studies.

Now the School of Art & Design student is using his production skills for free to help fellow participants on the scheme produce promotional videos for their companies.

Nitesh, from Darlaston, said one of the students he helped was Tamara Joseph, a postgraduate Fashion and Textile student, who has launched her own fashion business.

He said: “I made a short promotional video for Tamara’s website so that she can use it as a marketing tool and get the message across to people instead of just using text and photos. I decided to help her because video is a great marketing tool and I thought it would be very beneficial for her to have. I want to be successful myself, but I also want to see the other SPEED WM participants succeed.

“I love what I do and decided to apply for SPEED WM as I wanted to use my skills to start up a business.The whole SPEED WM package has been fantastic - I have received funding, mentoring and attend monthly conferences. I have learnt a lot since being on the programme and now am in a position to actively look for projects and build my brand image.”

Nitesh’s company is a commercial video production company focusing on corporate, promotional and creative videos. He offers aspects of the video production process from planning out ideas for clients, filming and editing the final video.
