SOAS is a world-renowned academic institution, uniquely positioned to analyse, interpret and respond to some of the most challenging issues facing your organisation today. Our focus on the politics, languages, cultures and societies of Africa, Asia and the Middle East—we have the largest concentration of such expertise in Europe—means that there has never been a more important time to engage with SOAS’s research and global networks.
The Enterprise team is here to link up governments, business, NGOs and other organisations with the wealth of expertise SOAS has to offer, and to ensure through wide-ranging and flexible support that each client’s needs are fully understood and met. We ensure every step of your partnership runs smoothly, and work with you to identify and access further funding, advise on legal and contractual issues, broker relationships and provide general support for the project.
SOAS also supports students to develop their entrepreneurial skills and launch sustainable enterprises through delivering diverse enterprise activities throughout the academic year. We offer a six-week pre-accelerator programme, masterclasses, workshops, funding competitions, expert mentoring and networking opportunities.
