Better Business for All
The government has set a priority of reducing the regulatory burden on businesses and has set up the ‘Better Business for All’ project to support this important initiative. Our Local Enterprise Partnership ‘D2N2’ has created a LinkedIn group enabling business to get advice, ask questions and comment on the whole process.

‘Discover’ – Ingenuity’s specialist search function
The Ingenuity Network is an ever growing collection of businesses together with an extensive range of university assets – the challenge is how do you find anything within such a vast and diverse range of resources?
‘Discover’ is a sophisticated search facility designed specifically to look at all businesses listed in the directory on the Ingenuity site as well as many of the university’s business relevant resources.
Please check it out and let us know what you think.
