A centre of entrepreneurial spirit and support
The Entrepreneurship Centre is an innovative space that uncovers and nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit in students, academics, staff and non-University members.
Through programmes, one-to-one support and inspiring events we provide tools, contacts, and confidence to facilitate the entrepreneurial journey and realise commercial potential. Together we develop successful, scalable and sustainable business start-ups and spin-outs for real-world societal and environmental benefit.
Start a business and make your idea a reality: the team provides the support you need to bring your ideas into the world.
Guidance on business planning and strategy: we support you to craft a business plan, build a team and raise finance to develop products and services.
Funding opportunities: advice on ‘translational’ or early-stage funding, including grant funding, to help you scope the commercial potential of your idea.
Mentor matching: matching entrepreneurs with experienced experts and mentors who can help build strong, professional teams as your spin-out or start-up grows.
Investor network: links to a network of later-stage investors, including angel investors and venture capitalists.
