Entrepreneurial Ⓜ️indset Network

On this page you can find out about the support we offer to higher education institutions.

We work with higher education institutions who have made, or who are considering making,  a strategic commitment to becoming more entrepreneurial in their teaching, research, organisational culture and in their contributions to society.

We offer a range of support including  essential workshops, bespoke workshops, briefings for executive and senior management teams, and general consultancy. 

Essential Workshops

We offer two half-day workshops on the entrepreneurial mindset in higher education and can develop other bespoke workshops tailored to your development objectives.  All workshops are delivered on site for the benefit of your academics, professional services staff, managers and leaders.

Briefings for executive and senior teams

These briefings are a highly effective way of introducing senior staff to the concept of the entrepreneurial university,  the benefits of the entrepreneurial mindset and the tools that can be used to self-assess institutional performance. 

Consultancy Support

We provide a wide range of consultancy to help institutions assess the strengths and weaknesses of their current entrepreneurial performance, to develop plans for greater innovation, to build on lessons learned and celebrate achievements.

Transformation of Higher Education
