Masood Entrepreneurship Centre
The focal point for enterprise and entrepreneurship at The University of Manchester and our mission is to encourage and support start-up businesses.
The University of Manchester has moved teaching online and has closed all non-essential facilities on campus due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
Whilst all our usual on-campus activities have been postponed during this difficult time, the team is working and still available to support all our students and graduate start-ups. Our general enquiry inbox firstname.lastname@example.org is open for business so please do drop us a line if you have any questions or queries.
We have also set up Zoom as a communications platform so that we can arrange face-to-face meetings with you if that would be helpful.
Through a programme of enterprise teaching, learning, business start-up support and acceleration, the Centre helps you to capitalise on your ideas and the world-leading research output from the University, transferring knowledge from the classrooms and laboratories into successful market opportunities.
