Ingenuity Lab benefits
The Ingenuity Lab creates a stimulating culture of ideas generation and exploration.
We have two main areas of activity:
Our Lab community
We bring members together to develop peer-to-peer networks as well as offers a regular timetable of events to challenge perceptions, offer greater understanding, and develop the practice of entrepreneurship.
Enterprise start up activity
We support great ideas through encouraging members to take part in competitions such as Ingenuity, YES and Enactus. While our support can help accelerate your ideas into the market place towards entrepreneurial success.
