About Enterprise@DMU



De Montfort University (DMU) has an important role and responsibility in its community and globally, to foster the human potential that the world needs and to expand the horizons of knowledge through collaborative research and exploration. In these times of unprecedented challenges and opportunities, progress depends on harnessing our collective talent, knowledge and creativity to cultivate solutions and improvements. 

We are committed to excellence and innovation in teaching and research that contributes to the public good. As an enterprising university, we encourage our students and staff to be true to themselves and to think ahead and beyond. Our resources and opportunities for enterprise are brought together in this web portal, pointing to opportunities for students, graduates, staff and businesses.

As DMU students and graduates you can discover a range of activities to test out new ideas, hone and practice your skills. These include exciting events to grow networks and a range of competitions and support for developing and ‘pitching’ business, design, and research ideas.

We encourage and welcome collaborations with entrepreneurs and businesses in Leicester, the United Kingdom and the world. Your support and involvement in student activity is highly valued and we invite you to see what our incredibly talented students can achieve.

We also welcome businesses to engage with our research community and to explore with us opportunities for collaboration and partnership. At DMU, we work with our business partners in a number of ways, including cutting edge research projects,  executive education, and open workshops for business.

Take a look at all that we have to offer and join us in fostering enterprising solutions to the challenges of our time.
