‌Enterprise and Entrepreneurship‌

‌Enterprise and entrepreneurial thinking needs to be embedded within education. Exposure to entrepreneurial processes and methodologies can inspire both students and staff alike to explore their business ideas. The University of Dundee has its eyes firmly set on being recognised as the most Entrepreneurial University in Scotland in the near future.

In its search for entrepreneurial excellence, the University of Dundee has entered into a unique partnership with Elevator for the joint creation of Dundee’s first Centre of Entrepreneurship. This partnership will see the University of Dundee become the first academic Institution in Scotland to have a bespoke business accelerator, designed, created and hosted on campus.

Uniquely, the Centre of Entrepreneurship (COE) will be fully open access and available to anyone in the Dundee City, and beyond, to attend. Building on Dundee’s global reputation for design innovation and research (Design in Action, UNESCO City of Design, V&A Museum of Design Dundee), the facility will be one of the first entrepreneurial centres in the world that will capitalise on a design-led approach for the way that the start-up and scale-up businesses will be guided.

Please select the appropriate option from the menu on the left which best describes you in order to get access to the tailored business support that is available to you as a student, staff member, recent graduate, alumni or general public from the COE, to learn the latest enterprising skills and to help turn your idea into a business opportunity.
