The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) is launching a programme to strengthen social entrepreneurship and social enterprises across England’s universities.

Funded by £2m ($3.28m) and outsourced to social enterprise support network UnLtd, the project will seek to encourage universities to act as hubs in support social entrepreneurs from staff, faculty, and from surrounding communities.

The project will aim to unite universities with surrounding institutions, local authorities, and private sector firms to create ‘ecosystems’ that support social entrepreneurship.
