University’s annual start-up competition open for expressions of interest

The University of Manchester’s Venture Further competition is now open for expressions of interest, allowing students and recent graduates from across The University of Manchester to indicate if they would like to take part in this year’s exciting competition.

This start-up competition gives entrepreneurial students and graduates across the University the chance to turn their ideas into reality and win significant early-stage funding to start their own business. A huge £75,000 prize fund is available across five categories, which will allow winning teams to get their businesses off to a flying start.

With some exciting changes on the horizon including new categories, fresh for 2021, and a greater number of prizes on offer, this year’s competition promises to be bigger and better than ever.

By expressing interest early, students and graduates can connect with the Masood Entrepreneurship team at the start of their journey, discuss potential ideas, and most importantly secure development support, advice and guidance to submit the best application possible.

To express an interest, simply register via Survey Monkey and tell us about the business idea. Upon completion of this survey, individuals will also be added to the Venture Further mailing list ensuring all interested applicants are made aware of any key information, guidance, resources and workshops that are relevant to the development of their entries and business proposals.

The competition will open formally for applications on Monday 2 November 2020 at 9 am, with the deadline for entries closing at midday on Thursday 25 February 2021.

Register your interest today! Be your own boss, venture further…

Venture Further is organised by the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre.
