Geneyus is a joint venture between the University of Northampton and Exemplas. We bring together the best elements of a local university – which has a strong background in practical education – and an organisation with many years of experience in helping local businesses grow and prosper.
Fundamentally, we engage with and help small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Northamptonshire, SEMLEP counties and Leicester and Peterborough, which are considering starting on a growth path. By forging and nurturing fruitful relationships with the university, local businesses prosper and graduates enjoy a high employment rate.
For businesses that are already on a growth plan, we offer services such as corporate degrees and access to Business Accelerator programmes.
An integral part of our service are our Growth Hub – a service that helps local businesses grow and develop. Our independent advisers will analyse what the real needs of the business are, define the priority areas for action, and then identify which support service is best placed to help them work through their key action points.
Geneyus has a sister company - Inspire2Enterprise - that is already successfully delivering a national support service for the social enterprise sector, with over 4,000 client engagements in the first 18 months. As a result of this initiative, the University of Northampton is recognised as being the UK’s No.1 university for social enterprise.
