Enterprise Fellowships - how to apply

All applications must be submitted through our online application system. Please read the essential guidance notes before starting your application, and ensure that you are eligible before applying. 

Applicants who have not previously applied for an impact-oriented grant may also wish to read the additional guidance notes, which provide hints and tips on how to answer the questions and common mistakes to avoid.
If you have any questions please email the Enterprise team

There are two stages to the application process. Both must be completed before an application can be assessed by the Selection Panel.

Application flow

Stage 1
In Stage 1, you briefly tell us about yourself and your idea. It will take about 30 minutes to complete. If you are eligible for the programme and your idea is suitable for the type of the support we offer and you are a good fit for the programme, then we will invite you to complete a stage 2 application. Stage 1 does not consider how good the idea is, but whether it fits within the criteria and aims of the programme. 

Stage 2

The Stage 2 application is more detailed and will consider how good the idea is, and your potential to lead a start-up. You will need to provide more information about yourself, the team, the technology and the business model. This part of the application will be reviewed by a panel of experts, and if successful you will be invited to interview.
