At LAUNCH.ed, the University of Edinburgh's award-winning service for student entrepreneurs, we work with students every day to help them explore their ideas, find funding and business partners, and ultimately, to work for themselves. Our services are free, confidential, and available to any Edinburgh student for the duration of their studies, as well as alumni up to two years after graduation.
Since 2005, we've helped Edinburgh students and alumni start more than 120 new businesses, of which more than 85% are still trading. LAUNCH.ed is a University of Edinburgh service delivered by Edinburgh Research and Innovation.
If you want advice on your business or business idea, make an appointment to speak to one of our business advisers. These informal meetings are a chance to get one-to-one support, and are the foundation of our service. We offer appointments at George Square, Edinburgh College of Art, and King's Buildings. **There may be a short wait for these appointments, but we look forward to meeting you asap to discuss your idea!**
