Applications for 2019/20 Enterprise Fellowships are now open. The submission deadline for Stage One is 4pm on Saturday 1 September 2018.
Our Enterprise Fellowships support innovative, creative entrepreneurial engineers who have demonstrated an exceptional innovation in engineering which they want to develop further.
The programme focuses on equipping the awardee with the confidence, skills, experience and network of expert advisors necessary to enable them to develop their innovation.
We support three types of individuals through our Enterprise Fellowships; researchers wishing to spinout a company from a university or research institute, recent graduates wishing to create a company, and international PhD students based in the UK, wishing to spin out or start up.
The Fellowships provide:
Up to £60,000 equity-free funding
Tailored mentoring and training
PR, marketing and promotion
Access to our drop-in workspace in central London
To date we have provided training, mentoring and £4.5million seed funding to 73 Enterprise Fellows ('Hub Members').
The Enterprise Fellowships Programme is made possible by the generous support of our sponsors, below. More information is available on their respective websites.
