Enterprise Fund: Awards of up to £5000 to support your business idea

Enterprise Fund

The Careers & Employability team are now accepting applications for their Design Your Future Enterprise Fund.

Awards between £500-£5000 are available to successful University of Liverpool students who want to develop an early-stage business idea or existing enterprise.

You don’t need to have a start-up already running, but you will need to supply a business plan to show how the funding will help you develop your idea.

Examples of activities the fund can support include:

  • Specialist equipment for your business
  • Technical equipment, such as laptops, and headphones
  • Recruitment of staff
  • Training or short courses directly related to business
  • Marketing activities
  • Professional body membership
  • Software packages
  • Accountancy services
  • Support contracted companies to undertake work, e.g. website design
  • Business development activity

The deadline for applications is Monday 31 May 2021. Funding is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis, and so early applications are encouraged.

If you are looking to make your entrepreneurial idea a reality, then the Design Your Future Enterprise Fund is here to help!
