Our Enterprise Fellowships support creative, entrepreneurial engineers and designers who have demonstrated an exceptional innovation in engineering which they want to develop further. For the first time ever, we are opening up our programme twice a year to provide applicants with the opportunity to start the year long programme in either January or July*. For this January cohort, the programme will start in July and will offer: 

  • Up to £60,000 in equity-free funding
  • One to one mentoring
  • Business skills training

These Fellowships support three types of individuals:

  • Researchers wishing to spin out a company from a university or research institute
  • Recent graduates wishing to start a company
  • International final-year PhD students already based in the UK wishing to spin out or start up here.

Deadline for stage one applications: 24 February 2020, 4pm
Please note, our Fellowships are only eligible to individuals based in the UK.

* We will be opening our programme again in July 2020. If you choose to apply in July, your programme start date will be in January the following year.
