Enterprise Campus

main content

Enterprise Campus is an exciting programme aimed at Postgraduate Taught students (PGTs), Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) and early career researchers. It seeks to help this community explore entrepreneurship as a career option and provides the necessary tools to allow PGRs and PGTs the opportunity to commercialise their research or develop high-growth, early stage business ideas.

Programme Overview

Enterprise Campus is a free and impartial service offering support for postgraduates – from business plan feedback and IP advice, to events, 1-2-1 clinics and funding.

Enterprise Campus is focused on encouraging new high-growth business start-ups, but whatever your idea, we are here to guide your business from initial concept through to incorporation. Ultimately, Enterprise Campus is aimed at entrepreneurially minded individuals by helping them build on existing transferable business skills. If you would like to explore the commercialisation of your research or already have a business idea and require support, we are here to advise and guide you as required.

Funded by the Scottish Funding Council, Enterprise Campus is a joint initiative between the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Strathclyde to support postgraduate students from any Scottish university who want to set up their own business.
