The Enterprise Committee steers the operation of the Royal Academy of Engineering's Enterprise Hub. Committee members work to promote and support Hub strategy and activities. This includes the development of partnerships, funding relationships, marketing and communication activities, advocacy and more. The Committee are the guiding lights of the Enterprise Hub’s work in the national realm.

I get a real kick out of seeing high impact successes being created and realised. Working together with an impressive team of colleagues, we have been on a major journey to set up the Enterprise Hub.

Now, with 52 new companies attracting over £36 million of investment and creating circa 200 new high grade jobs, we have seen some remarkable achievements in just a few short years.
