The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

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.
