A case-study is presented which uses an innovative platform to promote the development of entrepreneurial activity between engineering, design and business students. The platform is situated outside the curriculum and provides the opportunity for students with no formal engagement to form interdisciplinary teams to co-construct knowledge (knowledge building), share ideas (knowledge exchange) and build networks (knowledge communities). "Honeypot" brings together students, who value innovative-thinking and ideas generation as part of their UG experience. The presentation highlights the success and challenges of designing and implementing this platform for innovation and its subsequent impact on learning.
