Start a business
Norwich University of the Arts is committed to helping its students become successful graduates, as well as supporting the creative industries. That’s why we created the Ideas Factory at NUA.
Situated close to the heart of the NUA campus, the Ideas Factory is a modern office space designed to provide room for digital startups to grow. It’s home to graphic designers, photographers, digital product designers, film makers, animators, illustrators, writers and UX specialists, many of them NUA graduates.

Working alongside like-minded creative businesses offers exciting opportunities to collaborate and create networks of creative talent.
A programme of events, run exclusively for businesses based in the Ideas FactoryNUA, is tailored to the needs of digital startups, offering specialist support and one-to-one advice, as well as guidance on practical issues like finance and tax, business planning and marketing.
