The Entrepreneurship Centre supports Saïd Business School’s community in pursuing their entrepreneurial ambitions through experiential learning, local and global networks, and thought leadership. 



Our programmes offer experiential learning opportunities for students with a focus on entrepreneurship and innovation.

In addition to these programmes, the Centre will offer entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial initiatives which focus on students with ambitions to start their own ventures and work with a start up, as well as those who are looking to join larger organisations and have impact. More details will be available shortly including content and how to apply.

The oNetwork

People talking at conference

We strive to be a transformative partner to our students and alumni by promoting entrepreneurial values and thinking.

We invest not only our time and expertise, but also our connections to accelerate the entrepreneurial initiatives arising in the Oxford ecosystem. The members of the oNetwork are a curated group of highly experienced entrepreneurs and business leaders and reflect the high-quality of our community. By engaging them in our programmes and initiatives, we will continue to deliver on our promise to support all our students and alumni in pursuing their entrepreneurial ambitions.

Thought leadership

Hand holding bulb

We bring together thought leaders from academia, industry and government to critically discuss current issues in entrepreneurship, as well as to generate new ideas and devise new solutions. This discourse is driven by the academic research of the School and addresses a wide range of issues. 


We aim to inspire, educate and build networks through our world-class events.

Each year alongside our regular programme series and our flagship event Oxford Saïd Entrepreneurship Forum (OSEF), we run talks, interactive workshops and fireside chats for our students. These are often led by distinguished speakers, experienced leaders from our oNetwork, as well as facilitators from the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem. Our events are primarily aimed at Saïd Business School students, however some are open to the wider University of Oxford community and public.
