Welcome to WestFocus

Our ambition is to help our students, staff, and graduates to be more entrepreneurial and to start enterprises. 

We run the successful Bright Futures course and Bright Ideas competition for students. We also develop learning materials for entrepreneurship and provide advice and support to those starting new enterprises. This website and our regular newsletter provide signposting to further organisations and opportunities. 

Support for innovative University-based projects is provided through Business Creation, which has access to a number of funding opportunities.

WestFocus is a collaboration between universities based in London and the Thames Valley. Initially established as part of a government-funded Knowledge Exchange project, WestFocus is now funded by the universities.
