Entrepreneurs' students working on a project

Edinburgh Innovations, in collaboration with Edinburgh’s DDI Hubs, has launched the Data-Driven Entrepreneurship (DDE) Beacon Programme, funded by the Scottish Funding Council via Data-Driven Innovation.

We are looking for entrepreneurial students and staff from the University and beyond who want to make a real-world impact in 2021. Could this be you?

The University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Innovations are hosting a series of programmes to advance data-driven entrepreneurship and support a recovering society.

These activities offer huge opportunities to innovate and for entrepreneurial businesses, students, staff at the University and beyond to develop their ideas, build skills, scale up and connect their ideas to the world.

The DDE Programme is delivering 12 opportunities, between now and March 2022, to support entrepreneurship among partner organisations, staff and students, ranging from online courses to grants and a startup incubator.
