Awards will typically:
- be made to individuals from any department/school at the University of Bath
- complementary pairs of individuals from two different departments /schools at the University of Bath e.g. the Department of Computer Science and the School of Management
The Award offers:
- an award (grant) of up to £20,000 (£1,500 of this funds a year of Virtual membership at SETsquared Bath’s award winning business incubator). The grant assists with your living costs throughout the award year so that you can commit most of your time developing your business. The grant is not paid to your business and should not be considered as investment.
Awards are allocated at the discretion of the panel. Funds will be allocated in three tranches on the condition that milestones in the project plan are met. Your SETsquared Bath business mentor will monitor progress and sign off on the milestones before each payment is made to you. You will be expected to submit a monthly guest blog post describing your entrepreneurial journey as well as speak about your business at a SETsquared Bath business networking event.
