Not sure what to do with your summer?
Why not use some free money to develop a business idea?
Take a look at our different awards below and note the deadline for submission will be the 18th June at midnight. You can find details on how to apply here, but if you have any immediate questions, please contact Natasha on email@example.com.
If you are successful, you would be automatically given a place on InQUBEate, our incubator programme that begins in October. However, we are in the office all summer and can support you develop your business over the next few months.
We look forward to hearing from you!
‘Try It’ Prizes
Win funds of up to £500 to get your social enterprise or business idea off the ground. To win a Try It prize, you don’t need to have a business plan, just a problem you want to solve and some idea how you might do it. You might want to test a solution to a problem you see around you on campus or in the community. Or it might be you want to test out a business idea.
‘Grow It’ Prizes
Win funds of up to £5000 to develop your existing profit-making or social enterprise. To win a Grow It prize, your enterprise doesn’t have to be profitable yet, but you need to show a clear pathway to profitability. We’ll also ask you to outline exactly how this money would help you to take your enterprise to the next stage.
‘Build It’ Prizes
Win funds up to £10,000 to build a new product – an app, a website or a physical prototype – all you need to do is show your idea has commercial potential.
