Supporting emerging enterprise and entrepreneurs
Strathclyde's vibrant enterprise ecosystem is fostering the innovators and leaders of the future and supporting emerging enterprises that address global challenges.
Our enterprise ecosystem brings together the internationally renowned Strathclyde Business School, the pioneering Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, and the award-winning Strathclyde Entrepeneurial Network and Enterprise Hub.
We also engage with business and industry through the Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC), a cornerstone in the Glasgow Innovation District.
All this means our entrepreneurs and their ideas are given the best chance to succeed.
The Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund (SEF) has supported a diverse range of student and alumni-led enterprises:
- Pick Protection: creating innovative safety solutions for lone workers
- Cuantec: developing a novel solution to plastic waste
- Poweralife: supplying solar lighting to schools in the developing world
Alumni and friends around the globe, including Scottish Equity Partners and Arnold Clark Automobiles, have already made donations to support SEF and ensure that Strathclyde entrepreneurs have the essential start-up capital they need to succeed.
If you are interested in applying for funding for your business, please contact our SEF Fund Manager Gillian MacAulay for further information.
