University of Wales Trinity St David

The International Institute for Creative Entrepreneurial Development (IICED).

We are a friendly experienced team, working alongside our students, graduates and staff to help take forward a business, in any guise, commercial, social or cultural.   From that initial spark of an idea, through to already emerging businesses we help bring ideas to life.

Our focus is on the University’s creativity and innovation and our thinking is based on real world problem solving experience.  The Institute is a hub for all enterprise activities and research. Any discipline can take advantage of the expertise available and every Institute is represented. Exponents of enterprise develop their own contextual strategies through our active support.  We have received international recognition for our approaches and have helped to lead thinking with Enterprise Educators UK, AdvanceHE, European Commission and the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development.

What does University of Wales Trinity Saint David do?

We help future educators, staff and students to see opportunities through ideas generation, and evaluation, networking and supporting through external connections, including Welsh Government who actively support our projects.  Alumni support is central to our approaches and we help enterprising students to link up with similar ex-students who can help to fulfil their ambitions.
