Three Preston students have put their student loans together and created a website about Preston’s nightlife.Advertisement
Impulse is what the trio say a ‘night out equivalent of JustEast’ – the takeaway ordering service.
The website Impulse North allows Prestonians to check what local bars and clubs have on offer each evening in one place.
Business management student Dan Collins said: “We often find ourselves in a bar wondering where to go next, what bar has a good drinks deal that night or what club night is the best one to go to.
“That’s where the idea came from, to develop a really accessible website that will tell you where to go next with no hassle.”

He’s working alongside fellow University of Central Lancashire business student Will Taylor, 24, and games developer Kevin Strachan.
Will said: “We’re in the right place to develop this website because we’re also the target audience. We meet students on a daily basis, get regular feedback to improve the website and can build up trust with the local student community.”
The business partners have used money from their student loans to help set up the website, and they are now building an app.

Kevin said: “We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved. It’s only early days but we’ve had some great feedback and everything we’ve done has been on a shoe-string budget. We set this up in my bedroom and lived off pasta to fund it but it’s been worth it.”
