Are you a postgraduate? Do you fancy being your own boss or have a brilliant business idea?

Enterprise Campus http://www.enterprisecampus.org.uk/ can help you get your business off the ground, with three hubs working to support postgraduate entrepreneurs across Scotland.

From one-to-one business clinics with expert advisers, workshops on all aspects of starting a business, and business boot-camps that give you the chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs and work on your company, we can help take your idea or research to a business reality.

No matter where you study in Scotland – or whether you’re doing your postgrad or are a PhD researcher – we can help you explore the possibility of becoming an entrepreneur and grow your idea.

The next quarterly deadline for applications is 1st November 2016 so if you have a business idea, make sure you apply in time!

Key Points:

  • Eligibility is limited to current PGT (Master students) and PhD students, plus one year after graduation
  • Eligible opportunities must be pre-formation and pre-trading (though some exceptions can be made on a case by case basis)
  • 2 stage process which begins with an application (attached) and is followed by a panel interview
  • Please find process guidelinesec_applicationprocessy3q1 and an application form ec_-applicationformy3q1.

Submit your application form by 12noon Tuesday 1st November 2016 to me, Libby Anson: l.anson@gsa.ac.uk

Contact Libby if you have any questions.

Good luck!
