The University of Warwick is working to develop and grow social entrepreneurship and is encouraging both its students and staff to give their innovative ideas a go.  In 2012, two new social enterprises were launched following successful applications to the Warwick SU Ernst & Young Social Enterprise Project and this year the University has launched the Warwick Social Enterprise Award scheme, in partnership with UnLtd.  These awards are available to help staff, students and recent graduates to kick-start a socially enterprising idea and we are delighted to have supported six new projects already.
