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.

UMIP’s role

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.

Social enterprise in higher education

Social enterprise is growing particularly rapidly within higher education. It is a means by which students, academics and staff can use their skills to create social impact through active engagement on campus, in the local community or further afield.
