Enterprise support

  • Enterprise support

    Today’s undergraduates and graduates are tomorrow’s business leaders and social changemakers. At Oxford Brookes we nurture students, not only in their degree specialisms, but in the broader context of business, innovation, creative thinking, and enterprise culture.

    Each year, we invite students, recent graduates, and members of staff to generate innovative business ideas, and offer funding awards, mentoring and support to help them research their idea, develop a proof of concept, and ultimately bring it to life. From social enterprises to high-tech industrial applications, across arts, science and technology, we see participants improve their problem-solving, employability skills and business acumen.

    Many of our participants go on to set up their own businesses and some become serial entrepreneurs.

    We welcome the involvement of local businesses in a mentoring role to guide our entrepreneurs and broaden their experience of the commercial world.
