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.
Our ambition is to create an innovative community of entrepreneurs, working together to develop ideas, encourage radical innovation and produce exciting new start-ups.
We were awarded Small Business Charter accreditation for three years
