Venture Further 2016

(4 March 2016)

Venture Further invites students and recent alumni from the University to propose a business plan to an expert judging panel of enterprise and business professionals. The competition is a fantastic opportunity for individuals or groups to receive expert feedback on their business ideas and gives them the opportunity to win a £10,000 cash injection to get their idea off the ground.

Last year, eight businesses were awarded seed funding for spotting real opportunities.

Please encourage students to enter the competition. There are four prize categories to choose from:

  • Business: Businesses that have commercial potential via new products or services
  • Social: Businesses that improve the lives of people and communities
  • Digital: Businesses that apply digital technologies to generate new experiences and innovative business opportunities
  • Research: Businesses that focus on the application of university-based research to real-world problems and needs, typically with some form of intellectual property at the heart of the business

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 29 March 2015.
