University of Suffolk

The University of Suffolk is committed to transform and enhance the student and graduate experience and employment outcomes through the development of enterprise and entrepreneurship. We are building a quadripartite approach to enterprise education involving the student, the entrepreneur, the academic and the community.

We have a range of enterprise and entrepreneurship programmes delivered in curricular and extra curricular. A good example is our Games Hub.

The Games Hub, launched in 2016 to address a skills shortage in the Suffolk,  has gone on to help students and graduates showcase their games through the Tranzfuser scheme – a project which helps people get their games to market through exposure to industry professionals. The programme provides an innovative and creative environment for students to learn more about business skills and what is needed when setting up a business or becoming self-employed.

We have a start hub and incubation space for staff students and the community in the Ipswich Waterfront Innovation Centre (IWIC), which is also where the Directorate of Business Engagement & Entrepreneurship team is located. We work closely with other innovation centres and hubs across the East of England to support and promote enterprise and entrepreneurship education within our communities.
