Staffordshire University is an enterprising university with Employability, Enterprise and Entrepreneurialism at the heart of our institutional strategy. We pride ourselves on creating an enterprising community for our staff and students to enable them to prepare for and engage with the business world.
We provide a supportive network of expertise across our schools and faculties with the primary purpose of nurturing a culture of enterprise. Since 2002 through start-up schemes delivered by the Business School we have helped to create over 200 new businesses collectively employing over 360 people and through our planned growth over the next 4 years we are committed to doubling this number.
The ‘Be Inspired’ programme creates and maintains an enterprising collaboration and network of investors, entrepreneurs, business mentors, academics and industry leaders through business, networking and leadership events and the provision of springboard opportunities for new start-ups
We have an impressive portfolio of university spin-out companies, enabling us to bring to life ideas born within the University.
At Staffordshire University we are constantly exploring ways of making an impact on society through enterprise and a dedication to stimulating economic growth.
