Entrepreneurs urged to bid for start-up funding
ENTREPRENEURS from Cambridgeshire can apply for a share of £35,000 to help start up a new business.
Anglia Ruskin’s Enterprise Fellowship Scheme is in its second year and is run by Anglia Ruskin’s Centre for Enterprise Development and Research (CEDAR).
It is open to anyone in the county who has a bright business idea and is looking for financial backing.
In addition to a share of the £35,000, successful applicants will also receive mentoring support, specialist training and development, legal support and advice and access to the Startuplab, the new business incubation centre at Anglia Ruskin.
Lester Lloyd-reason, professor of international enterprise strategy at Anglia Ruskin, said: “Cambridge- shire is a hotbed of entrepreneurship – and not just in the traditional technology sector.
“We are passionate about driving enterprise and entrepreneurship because we recognise that it’s the lifeblood of our economy and we hope this scheme will help more local entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality.”
The scheme is open to anyone liv- ing or working in Cambridgeshire, except staff and undergraduate students at Anglia Ruskin.
The first phase of the application process closes at midnight on Saturday, June 30.
