The RSE Enterprise Fellowship is a premier business development and training programme for the Higher Education sector. Established over 20 years ago to support the commercialisation of university IP, the Fellowship nurtures promising science and technology researchers, enabling them to develop into world-class entrepreneurs with thriving businesses.

Each Fellowship is worth up to £90,000 in funding and training support!

Over the course of the Fellowship (a year in duration), RSE Enterprise Fellows receive:

  • One year's salary; providing the time to focus solely on developing the business
  • Expert training in entrepreneurship delivered to the highest standard of international excellence
  • Access to mentorship from Fellows of the RSE and other successful entrepreneurs in the business community
  • Up to £10,000 business support funds
  • Professional networking opportunities and membership of the RSE Entrepreneurs' Club

RSE Enterprise Fellows are hosted within a UK university or research institute for the 12-month duration of the Fellowship. During which time, they benefit from the use of the university facilities and connections before they complete the programme and are ready to lead their new company.

We ensure that our Enterprise Fellows are supported and equipped with the skills necessary to succeed in today’s fast-paced global business environment.
An Enterprise Fellowship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the potential to truly be life-changing! See the RSE website for more information and to apply.
