The Enterprise Fund has been bolstering enterprise and entrepreneurship within the University for the past three years, thanks to our partnership with Santander Universities UK. Applications have opened once again, and successful applicants will receive up to £500 to make their business idea a reality.
Earlier this academic year, virtual pitching sessions were introduced to allow successful applicants to present their business idea in person, receive feedback, and practice their pitching skills.
In the previous round of funding, four projects were supported by the Enterprise Fund, including Marketing student Phoebe Baldwin’s (pictured) beauty brand Fair To Look Fabulous (FTLF). Tired of beauty products that perpetuate animal cruelty in the cosmetic industry and of excessive plastic waste, Phoebe created her own business that provides high quality, affordable products that are “fair to the planet, fair to animals and fair to your bank account”. The award is helping Phoebe to spread awareness of her brand by covering her digital marketing costs and funding some training courses.
During the last disbursement, the Enterprise Fund was also able to support Claudia Fryer and Rhun Morris’ waste management business, Assisteco; Maxwell Goddard’s merchandise project as part of his music event business Rum Riddimz Run; and Richard Schindler’s platform for filmmakers, FilmLink.
