City Enterprise works with local and national organisations to design and deliver initiatives that extend the reach of City’s academic excellence to generate long-lasting social or economic impacts.
We are particularly focused on the diverse and fast-growing cluster of digitally-enabled businesses centred on the parts of east central London immediately around our campus – known as Tech City.
Our specialist team of Business Development and Knowledge Transfer Partnership Managers is ready to engage with businesses, professions, sectors and civil society bodies to enable purposeful exchanges of knowledge and expertise involving the City. We are especially interested in partners from London and from other World Cities.
Many of the partnerships we help create are commercial in nature, while others have a more social purpose. All are intended to contribute to significant improvements like building business success, addressing skills shortages or developing resilient local communities.
