At the University of Nottingham we appreciate that small and medium-sized businesses need help with business development and in reaching their full potential. We work with local businesses every day in a variety of ways, such as helping them find an academic who can offer advice and support in a specialist subject, placing a student into their business to work on a particular project, or providing bespoke training for their staff. In addition, for businesses which are looking to expand and work in a stimulating and innovative environment, we offer space to grow at the University of Nottingham Innovation Park (UNIP).
Ingenuity, our local business network, provides an ideal way for you to meet staff at the University who can provide you with the services you need for business development, when you need them. Ingenuity also offers businesses the chance to network with each other and to hear about some of the latest academic ideas about business and leadership, through the Ingenuity KnowledgeXchange seminar programme. However large or small your business is, and whatever industry you are in, we can help to give you the competitive advantage you need to successfully develop and grow your business.
