Enterprise Hub

Starting a new business venture is exciting and rewarding, but also full of challenges which is especially true for current students and recent graduates. The Kent Enterprise Hub offers a range of services to help potential entrepreneurs develop and get the most out of their ideas.

Located at the heart of the Kent campus, the University of Kent’s business incubation and support unit is devoted to helping current student, graduate and staff start-up ventures and early stage companies to increase survival rates.

We provide business support services to our incubator companies, as well as flexible office space and laboratory accommodation (where available). Companies also get access to University expertise, planning help and networking opportunities with the wider business community.
