About

The future of enterprise at Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University is creating a new home for enterprise in the city centre. A centre that is home to a community of exciting entrepreneurs and enterprising businesses. By combining high-quality facilities with our extensive business support offer, the centre provides opportunities for like-minded businesses to grow through our network of entrepreneurs and enterprising peers.

Until March 2022, our programme will be part funded by the European Regional Development fund.

Our values

More than just a building.

We offer more than just space. Our new centre wants to bring students and graduates, entrepreneurs, and small to medium sized enterprises together.

We understand the value of our community to support each other’s development. We’re not trying to compete in a crowded marketplace against office space providers. As well as high quality a facility, we are encouraging our members to take advantage of the experience and values our enterprise community shares. Together, by sharing these values, this is how we help enterprise grow.

Collaboration

Working together within the centre and across NTU to widen networks and enable joint working that will benefit all parties.

Connectivity

Linking members with organisations and individuals to add value and contribute to the success of their enterprise.

Community

Bringing together members and partners for peer-to-peer development, the sharing of knowledge and experience, building confidence and creating commercial opportunities for mutual benefit.
