Liber Project


‘Liber’ is the Latin word for ‘free’. Free to feel in charge, to reframe and shape your future.


Already in its second year, the Entrepreneurship Centre’s Liber Project is engaging UK start-ups, scale-ups, and SMEs for a tailored business development programme. The initiative brings founders and C-level executives together with Oxford Saïd Business School MBA, Executive MBA students, and alumni for a 5-month highly collaborative project. Students gain practical experience whilst providing organisational and operational support to the enrolled businesses.


All participants of the Liber Project will gain tailored content in entrepreneurship and innovation topics, whilst building a community of like-minded founders, students, and experts.


If you are a current student or Saïd Business School alumni and want to be involved, look out for further information and announcements via the Entrepreneurship Centre Canvas page or on our Linkedin.
