On this page: an overview of our 6 stage process for recognising entrepreneurial universities

image19

We offer international recognition of the entrepreneurial activities of universities. Organisations who can demonstrate that they meet our eligibility criteria will receive a printed certificate and digital badge, confirming that they have been endorsed as an Entrepreneurial University by the Entrepreneurial Ⓜ️indset Network.

Stage 1 Any university who wishes to apply for our endorsement must register their interest, supply the name and email address for a key contact person and pay the one-time membership fee.

Stage 2 Within 5 working days, an electronic copy of an application template will be sent to the key contact person at the university. The template consists of a data set by which the Univeristy can demonstrate that it meets our eligibility criteria.

Stage 3 The University must gather the data needed to complete the template. By focusing on data that should already be in the public domain we avoid placing any undue administrative burdens on the university. We provide email support during this stage to clarify any issues and answer any questions.

Stage 4 The data required includes brief information about the impact of entrepreneurial thinking in 1) the mission of the university 2) the education of students 3) research 4) organisational culture and 5) the role of the university in its local ecosystem. The University must enter the required data online using our electronic template and pay the application fee.

Stage 5   The University will be notified of the outcome of its application normally within 30 days of its application. Universities that have provided the complete data set, and who have in our judgement demonstrated that they meet our eligibility criteria, will be endorsed as an Entrepreneurial University.

Stage 6 Within a further 14 days, the University will be sent its printed certificate and digital badge, confirming that they have been endorsed as an Entrepreneurial University by the Entrepreneurial Ⓜ️indset Network.

Renewal Stage Each year a University can renew its endorsement by providing any updates to its data set and paying the annual fee. A new certificate and digital badge will be issued for that year. Our annual validation process is designed to ensure that our endorsements are valid by virtue of being based on current data.
