University of Greenwich established the Centre for Innovation, Imagination and Inspiration (i3 Centre) to support entrepreneurship throughout the university http://www.i3centre.com It runs the annual Enterprise Challenge which has attracted over 800 participants.
A programme of digital workshops supports aspirational entrepreneurs to develop and refine their business ideas resulting in a highly competitive final event to showcase the best of the best.
The i3 Centre has extensive international links through multiple European Projects to support entrepreneurial activity amongst our many partners. Current projects include:
