About the Ingenuity Lab


Support for you and your business

Unlock your business potential at the Ingenuity Lab

The Lab offers a friendly and inspiring environment where you can explore your business ideas and start up your own enterprise.

Join the Lab

If you have an interest in business, whether it’s a fully commercial venture or a social enterprise, then the Lab is where you need to be.  We encourage exploration, co-operation and collaboration, striving to produce innovative solutions to social/market problems. Our aim is to create products and services that are not only fit for purpose, but also offer a different perspective and approach.


Students and alumni of the University of Nottingham can become members of the Lab. Membership is free of charge, but you will be asked to provide evidence of your business ideas and meet the Lab Manager to discuss your proposal.
