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.
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.
