Need an injection of funding to kick start your business or idea? UEA Student Enterprise is here to support you, no matter what stage you're at.
Whether you're looking to test an idea, launch a venture, or secure growth for a social/commercial enterprise that you're already running, funding could prove the difference in unlocking new opportunities.
- "Try It" - up to £500 grant to help you explore an idea
- "Do It" - up to £3,000 grant to launch a venture
- "Grow It" - up to £7,500 grant to support your venture: to make it either commercially sustainable or investment ready
- "Scale It" - up to £50,000 investment.
The "Try It" and "Do It" schemes are open to students and those who have graduated in the last six months, while the "Grow It" and "Scale It" schemes are additionally open to those who have graduated within the last three years.
"Try It" and "Do It" schemes
We are very fortunate to have funding support from Santander Universities to enable our funding scheme. So far we've awarded over £100,000 in both "Try It" and "Do It" seed funding to student and graduate start ups. Why not join them and launch your venture?
"Grow It" and "Scale It" schemes
Both the "Grow It" and "Scale It" schemes have been made available from The Enterprise Fund, which has been established with the generous support of UEA alumni. In addition to providing the financial support, these alumni will also support applicants with their considerable skills and experience.
Please note, that while anyone eligible for the funding may apply for these larger schemes, any applicants will be at an advantage if funding has already been secured from either the "Try It" or the "Do It" schemes.
