We are proud to be embedded in a world-class University. Over the years, we have been the beneficiaries of being a part of this remarkable university: Our GOTO programme, our Oxford 1+1 MBA, our joint undergraduate programme with Economics, our masters programmes with Economics and Law, the Ideas to Impact initiative led by Dr. Marc Ventresca, our joint research, and more deliver this embeddedness.
Embeddedness means not only benefitting from the University but supporting it as well. October 2017, we gave Oxford students a magnificent gift, the Oxford Foundry. The Foundry supports all 23,000 Oxford students, and in our first year, over 2100 students (83% of whom come from other university departments) have made use of the workspace, programmes and expertise the Foundry has to offer. Three-quarters of the start-ups currently supported by the Foundry’s inaugural L.E.V8 accelerator programme were founded by Oxford alumni.
