Just 25% of turnover is derived from HEFCE funding, with the majority from the University’s commercial companies operated through its trading arm UH Ventures. This includes its local business support agency, Exemplas, which jointly runs Business Link East of England and Business Link for Yorkshire. Summary Universities play a key role in sustaining the economic prosperity of the United Kingdom. There is a growing recognition amongst key decision makers, in the UK Government and beyond, that we need a new generation of universities, of businessfacing universities, to step up to the economic challenges faced by the UK in increasingly global markets. (University of Hertfordshire, 2011).The University of Hertfordshire has positioned itself as a leading businessfacing University, based around an innovative and enterprising mindset. In 2007, the businessfacing model was progressed through a £4.2m HEFCE funded project, UHEvolution, aimed at driving employer engagement and accelerating the implementation of the Institution’sStrategic Plan (20072012).The project led to investment in a package of support activities including ‘hothousing’ new solutions to business problems (UHInnovative Solutions) and embedding a businessfacing culture amongst staff (UHMindset).
