Mae Prifysgol Aberystwyth yn ymfalchïo mewn cael ei hystyried yn sefydliad entrepreneuraidd, ymchwil ac addysgu. Mae strwythur sefydliadol y Brifysgol yn arwain at waith rhagorol mewn perthynas ag ymgysylltu â busnesau, entrepreneuriaeth a sgiliau.

Mae GRRaIN yn rhoi llwyfan i weithgareddau menter arddangos yr hyn sydd gan Aberystwyth i’w gynnig. Yn wahanol i ganolfannau entrepreneuriaeth generig, mae gan GRRaIN y gwahaniaeth o ran arlwyo ar gyfer mentrau gwledig neu fentrau sy’n canolbwyntio ar ardaloedd gwledig. Bydd GRRaIN yn trosglwyddo gwybodaeth ac arfer gorau i’r busnesau gwledig hyn ac yn darparu cyfleoedd ar gyfer hyfforddiant.


Growth, Rural Resilience and Innovation Network

Aberystwyth University prides itself on being regarded as an entrepreneurial, research and teaching institution. The organisational structure of the University results in some excellent work in relation to business engagement, entrepreneurship and skills.  

GRRaIN provides enterprise activities with a platform to showcase what Aberystwyth has to offer. Unlike generic entrepreneurship hubs, Aberystwyth’s GRRaIN has the distinction of catering for rural based or rural focussed enterprises. GRRaIN will transfer knowledge and best practice to these rural businesses and provide opportunities for training.
