Enterprise! Funding

Money makes the world go round, and if you want your business idea to take off, you’re going to need some!

If you want to make it big, you’ve got to start small. We’d all love an immediate million pound investment, but a little amount can go a long way towards launching an enterprise or organising a project. Begin by entering competitions like Bright Ideas – you could win £250 or £1000, and the workshops, pitching sessions and feedback will be invaluable as you progress towards larger funding!

Great news! As part of the Enterprise! programme you gain access to our £20,000 start-up fund!

We’re here to support you in whatever way we can, which is why we offer our own funding! Working with your peers and our mentors, you can identify the next steps towards making your business idea a reality, and we’ll help fund it – just produce a small budget for the work, and complete a short application form.


If you would like to access the fund, firstly check out the Frequently Asked Questions document and when you’ve read that complete the Enterprise! Fund Application Form. Money is available for projects throughout the year, but we have a few dates when we meet up to discuss applications.If you have any questions, contact us at entrepreneurship@kingston.ac.uk.
