Since 2011, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has funded the National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs (NACUE) to develop more student-led and sustainable enterprise societies and activity across the HE and FE sectors. We do this so that more people are equipped with the skills and ambition they need to succeed in business. There are some excellent examples of students across college and university disciplines coming together to share their ideas and start businesses. Since 2011, NACUE has expanded the number of enterprise societies from 59 to 204.
