Futures Centre


In Futures we advocate inspiring and responsible entrepreneurship. Our major goal is to enable individuals and organisations to innovate and thrive responsibly and in accordance with the needs of society as a whole.

We achieve this by:

  • Creating new opportunities for students and businesses
  • Improving livelihoods
  • Challenging traditional expectations regarding wealth and doing business.

By creating unique entrepreneurial teaching and learning opportunities, we enhance the economic potential of the Southwest region in the UK, boost employability, and enable innovation and transformation of business and societal structures, both locally and globally.

The Futures Entrepreneurship Centre is driven by the desire to instill and develop entrepreneurial skills of students within the Faculty of Business and across the wider University.

Everything we do at Futures is guided by six principles: Community, Collaboration, Inclusivity, Responsibility, Opportunity and Prosperity
