UUSU Enterprise Centre

The UUSU Enterprise Centre helps Ulster University students and graduates develop and

achieve their ambitions by providing funding, advice, resources and opportunities.

How we can help:

Business Advisory Services

Whether it’s help with creating a prototype, registering your company or acquiring your first customer our dedicated Business Advisors will connect you with the right people and resources to make your business idea a reality.

 

Prototyping & Design

Would a 3D printed prototype help you sell your idea to potential investors? Or how about professionally designed mock ups? We can help with a range of prototyping and design needs to professionalise your pitch and help you visualise your ideas.

 

Intellectual Property Advice

Connect with one of Ulster University’s IP Specialists through UUSU Enterprise Centre. We can help you file an intellectual property right such as a patent, trademark or design protection and help you with non-disclosure agreements to protect your ideas when speaking with third parties.

 

Funding & Investment

Throughout the year there are several funds, grants and investment opportunities. These range from £250 - £10,000 proof of concept grants and crowdfunding support to investment pitches with Innovation Ulster Ltd; Ulster University’s wholly owned knowledge and technology investment company.

 

Workspace & Incubation

We partner with key organisations to offer workspace and incubation facilities in close proximity to Ulster University campuses. Working alongside other entrepreneurs can help inspire and develop you on your entrepreneurial journey.

 

Personal Development Opportunities

Throughout the year UUSU Enterprise Centre hosts over 40 skills workshops and events across all four Ulster University campuses. We also deliver enterprise programmes and competitions that encourage you to be more entrepreneurial while developing your business and leadership skills.
