Arc Universities

The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP) has announced a new part-Government funded project – delivered in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University – set to promote entrepreneurship and support start-up businesses in the county.


The new Oxford Brookes Enterprise Centre will give companies access to lab spaces, experts and professional networks. It’s hoped that the new project will support the creation of at least 17 start-up companies and 74 jobs.

The centre will capitalise on Oxfordshire’s excellence in research and innovation, as well as its dense network of knowledge-intensive businesses and skilled workers – essential to a successful ‘innovation ecosystem’.

David Hartley, Commercial and Knowledge Exchange Director at Oxford Brookes University, said: “This is an exciting development for Oxfordshire’s ambitious entrepreneurs and for the University.

“The project will have a positive ripple effect within our local economy, bringing new jobs and investment. Supporting not only with a physical space and excellent facilities but also with our research, expertise and enterprise community, we’re delighted to be helping a new generation of innovators and young businesses kickstart their ideas.”
