Generation Essex for graduates
The Coronavirus crisis has meant that we have had to change some of our Generation Essex support for graduates, but there’s still lots on offer to help you achieve your graduate goals:
Our Coaches and careers experts have now contacted everyone who has opted into Generation Essex 2020. They will have emailed you to ask your current situation and offer resources and support using the personal email address that you provided when you registered for your final year, so if this has changed please let us know, and update your contact preferences. If your circumstances have changed since we contacted you and you need some support, you can book an appointment, or email email@example.com
Consider starting your own business
Although we are no longer able to offer Generation Essex Startup and East15 Grants, the Click Crowdfunding Team have created a new stream of match-funding specifically for 2020 graduates who were interested in this support. They will match up to £500 for a business startup and up to £1000 for a theatre project.
In addition to this, if your match funding project is successful, the Essex Startups Team will offer you specialised support to help you make your business or company a continued success. Interested? Please apply via Click and we'll connect you with Essex Startups who will offer you a 1:1 appointment to support you to make the most of your funding.
Essex Startups also offer support to graduates up to 3 years after graduation. Book a 1:1 appointment via zoom to discuss business ideas and support. As graduates you can also access Essex Startups workshops and webinars covering topics such as idea generation, marketing and budgeting, book via CareerHub.
