About us

Award winning social enterprise

Coronavirus update

Following significant new measures announced by the Prime Minister on Monday 23 March, we have now closed our Coventry campus.

Our response to COVID-19

Our MISSION is to help people realise their entrepreneurial potential

We are the only UK example of a social enterprise set up by a university to promote social entrepreneurship and innovation. Our remit is to maximise Coventry University's role as an anchor institution by finding ways of benefitting the local community and achieving true social value.

Our role as social innovators extends to supporting students, alumni, staff and the community at various stages of their entreprenurial journey.


In 2017/18, we have supported the establishment of 15 social enterprises, the highest number ever achieved amongst UK universities.
