This scheme is currently closed and will reopen in 2018.


All applicants must be registered with the Academy’s single sign-on system, or must first register and provide some basic login details to create a profile.

The application should be submitted by the person who will be playing a leading role in the development of the proposed business. A summary of the guidance notes are embedded within the system itself, however the guidance given below is more detailed so we recommend you keep this document to hand.

If you have any questions concerning the application or the online grant system, please email the Enterprise team.
