If you're a student at Nottingham and have an enterprising mind-set you're definitely in good company. Named as the first Entepreneurial University of the Year by The Times Higher Education in 2008, the University, through the Institute, supports a number of extra-curricular initiatives including the Ingenuity Lab and the Student Venture Challenge business plan competition.
The University is also fortunate to host a number of active societies run by students themselves. These include Nottingham Entrepreneurs, an SU affiliated society and the Enactus Nottingham team (previously Students In Free Enterprise).
The Ingenuity Lab can help students and graduates who are interested in setting up their own business.
The Undergraduate Ingenuity Prize is a business plan competition open to all Nottingham University undergraduate students.
The Biotechnology Young Entrepreneurs Scheme is a business plan competition aimed at bioscience postgrad and postdoctoral researchers.
