Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

A University Enterprise Zone

The University of Nottingham is one of four University Enterprise Zones (UEZs) across England. UEZs aim to encourage universities to strengthen their roles as strategic partners in local growth and to stimulate development of incubator space for small businesses. 

The Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship supports these aims with its work and research around the development of enterprise and entrepreneurial skills, innovation and understanding of the commercialisation of research.

Biotechnology YES underway in 20th year with a new partner on board

The 2015 Biotechnology Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (YES) for early career researchers is now open for entries. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the scheme which, along with its sister competition Environment YES, has attracted nearly 5,000 alumni, who as a result have gone on to start businesses, work in industry, facilitate technology transfer, and have developed more collaborative academic careers.

Not being promoted? Can't find a job? Need more money, flexibility, a better work-life balance? Start your own online business," are the many calls being made.

Young Entrepreneurs get Inspired

185 young entrepreneurial students have been assisted by the city's Inspired in Nottingham programme over the last two years, developing the potential within the region's business leaders and entrepreneurs of the future. A partnership between The University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, Central College Nottingham and New College Nottingham, the programme was set up in January 2013 with the aim to help budding entrepreneurs progress their business ideas.
