Entrance to The Hive and The Hive logo

The Hive is Nottingham Trent University's purpose-built centre for entrepreneurship and enterprise.

We support the creation of new businesses as well as fostering the delivery of entrepreneurship education into the curriculum across the University.

Who we can help

We are primarily for students and graduates of NTU. However, we also offer help to anyone with a viable business idea. We also help staff who need to embed enterprise into their curriculum.

Inspired in Nottingham 

Inspired in Nottingham is a programme designed by the city's four universities and Further Education Colleges as part of the City Deal to create opportunities for our students to set up their own businesses.

If you are under 35 years old and have a business idea then please get in touch to discuss how we can help.

"Ultimately it's hard work that will make your idea a reality, but The Hive will get you there sooner by steering you in the right direction."
