If you have a fantastic idea for a business, apply to our Enterprise Fund competition and you could win up to £500 to kick-start your venture.
The Enterprise Fund, which is run by the University and Santander Universities, supports student initiatives and is open to our undergraduate and postgraduate students. We are looking for students who have a passion, drive and commitment to make their idea a reality. You can enter as an individual, or as part of a group.
Previous funding has been used to support and develop innovative projects, to fund training courses, to develop business skills, and to travel to enterprise competitions or conferences.
Applications are now open for the second round of awards this academic year and will be the last opportunity for students to enter before the Enterprise Fund closes for this year.
In the previous round of funding, five projects were supported by the Enterprise Fund, including Tobias Fox and Edward Lynch’s app, Lyfe.

Lyfe is an app that makes living a healthy lifestyle easy and provides exclusive discounts to hundreds of retailers, which are divided into categories based on proven medical research. The award has allowed Tobias and Edward to work on the app’s marketing and to develop new partnerships with retailers in Liverpool.
Another awarded project was Fengyi Hu’s Closet Collective, an initiative that raises awareness of clothing waste and pollution and that promotes circular fashion and encourages waste reduction.

The funding helped Fengyi to hold fashion workshops in collaboration with Green Guild in which she taught key skills to repair and upcycle clothes.
This opportunity allowed her to research the market by directly talking with participants, build customer connections and further develop her skills.
To apply, visit our Enterprise Fund webpages. Applications close on Friday, 17 April.
