Entrance to The Hive and The Hive logo

The Hive is Nottingham Trent University's purpose-built Centre for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise.

We help turn business ideas into reality, as well as delivering expert entrepreneurship education into the curriculum across the University. So if you have a business idea or even just want to go freelance, get in touch and see how we can help you.

Who we can help

We are primarily for students and graduates of NTU. However, we also offer help to anyone with a viable business idea. We also help staff who need to embed enterprise into their curriculum.


Our flagship programme, HeadStart, runs twice a year and provides the structure to help you shape your business concept, identify and evaluate your opportunities and potential, and structure a full business proposal.

"Ultimately it's hard work that will make your idea a reality, but The Hive will get you there sooner by steering you in the right direction."
