What are social enterprises?
They are enterprises that use business methods to tackle problems in society. Social change for good is their primary motive rather than profit.
With ‘Social Responsibility’ a core strategic goal of the University, UMIP is committed to promoting an understanding of Social Enterprise and encouraging participation. We’ll give you guidelines and tools to progress your idea, help with funding, help with IP protection – and ultimately help you set up a social venture of your own.
