Funds & Developmental Bursaries

financial support 1

Do you have a business idea but struggling to find the finance to get it off the ground or need additional funds to expand your current operation? We offer a range of awards to provide the opportunity for students or recent graduates to gain a financial boost to their new idea, business or social enterprise.

Whether it’s a small bursary to investigate a potential market, Proof of Concept funds for market testing or prototyping of a technology based project, government grants to develop a range of businesses in the region or funds to help you work with an experienced mentor from your sector to guide you, we work with you to attract relevant financial resources to help achieve your aims.

Each Award is subject to an application process and has specific eligibility requirements. Get in touch to find out more.
