The team was created to support entrepreneurs to make an economic impact in the region and stimulate a culture of innovation at the university. Since launching, the team has supported hundreds of entrepreneurs who have gone on to raise hundreds of thousands of investment and make millions of pounds worth of impact in the economy. You can read our Impact Report from 2018 – 2020 which outlines the projects we initiated and the impact they had.
