Meet The Team

Wray Irwin

Social Entrepreneur in Residence at The University of Northampton

As SEiR, Wray works in partnership with The Young Foundation whilst simultaneously being embedded within the University. His role is to scout for potential entrepreneurs both within the University and the wider community, and help them to develop their ideas to the point where they become successful ventures. His position is the first in a UK University and as such Wray is the heart of the We Do Ideas programme.

Prior to this position, Wray worked in the higher education sector promoting enterprise and working with communities to develop enterprising solutions to the challenges they faced. He also completed his Masters in Social Enterprise and Community Development at Cambridge University in 2009.

Wray’s experience is rooted in the social enterprise sector where he was a founding director of Social Enterprise East Midlands (SEEM) and successfully ran the Northamptonshire Co-operative Development Agency (NCDA) for over 5 years.

In his spare time Wray is a lover of all things outdoors, white water rafting, outdoor swimming and walking and lets not forget his dog, Winston.
