Funding Enterprising Ideas
If you have an idea for a business or other initiative there are a number of ways you can try out new ideas by tapping in to funding, networks and support to make things happen.
Lancaster University Enterprise Fund
Through our partnership with Santander Universities we are able to offer early stage enterprise activity, initiatives and fledgling businesses small amounts of seed funding to make ideas happen, and develop new products and services (max. £500).
Details of the fund, eligibility and how to apply can be found here.
A number of enterprising students have already benefited from the Enterprise Fund and here are just a few examples of what opportunities it can unlock:
Other sources of funding
