Workshops, training and support
The Santander Microfinance scheme gives current students and graduates within the last 3 years from the University of Essex grants to support ventures that are at a developmental stage. If your application is successful you will receive a grant up to a maximum of £3,000.
As well as the written application, you will also need to produce a short video, no more than three minutes in length, giving an introduction to your business/idea, and explaining what the funding will allow you to do.
Applications are open from 6 February to 6 March. The pitching event will be held in The Lab on 23 March. You will be notified if your application has been successful and will be given details of the pitch day via email.
