Do you run a social enterprise?


Are you currently facing any business issues with your social enterprise?

Would you like external advice?


If so, the Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies at the University of Leeds would like to hear from you!

We are inviting applications from social enterprises who would like the opportunity to work with a group of final year undergraduate students undertaking a consulting project to investigate and provide advice on an issue that is important to you.

Enterprises who successfully apply and work with a student group would be provided with £400 to support the costs of the project. This is an opportunity to receive tailored advice and a fresh perspective on a challenge that is currently affecting your social enterprise. The project would run from the beginning of February until mid-April

To request an application form or for any further information, please contact Dr Alex Kevill on or 0113 343 0584.
