Powering the Enterprising Generation
NACUE is a membership organisation with a mission to create the most impressive student talent pool ever known. We represent the dreamers, the thinkers, and the strivers- those who don’t just want to read a book but write it.
Grow- We create, nurture and support over 240 entrepreneurial societies at universities and colleges across the country.
Connect - We deliver events attended by thousands of exceptional students, graduates and educators, connecting them with skills and resources needed to achieve their goals.
Advocate - We champion the voice of tens of thousands of students and educators, delivering their voice to the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills.
Enterprise societiesThe 240 enterprise societies in our network are groups of students who passionately believe that by putting their ideas into action they gain the confidence, creativity and capability they’ll need to thrive in an ever-changing future economy. Enterprise societies come in all shapes and sizes, some provide funding, business incubator space and pop-up shops for student startups, others run ‘hackathons’ to create solutions to business problems, bring leading speakers to campuses, and even create policy think-tanks. They do this because they believe in sharing the opportunity of enterprise and entrepreneurship with their peers.

Our WorkOur close relationship to our network gives us the opportunity to advocate greater support for enterprise to policymakers and influencers and to create partnerships with institutions, government and companies to improve the journey of enterprising students. We work with every type of institution, from the city-centre vocational college to the traditional research-led university, and partner with some of the leading businesses in the world to deliver over 20 events and conferences each year. We provide experience and knowledge to those setting up and running enterprise societies, services to institutions that want to establish an enterprising culture among their students, and policy solutions to government.
