Thanks to the support of LanciaConsult, the Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement office is delighted to announce that there is a new grants pot worth £8,000 per annum for students and alumni from any University of Brighton degree who have already set up a technology-based/digital/software/mobile app-based private or social venture, and who are now seeking to grow their enterprise.

The aim of the fund is to enable students and alumni from the University of Brighton to grow their businesses and social enterprises. The fund can be used to pay towards new product development, new technology within the venture (including web design and e-marketing materials), specialist equipment, software, materials and protection of intellectual property, amongst other things.

The size of each individual grant will be between £500 and £5000. Larger grants may be awarded in exceptional circumstances. Please note that any intellectual property generated during the application process, or as a result of the LanciaConsult Growth Grant Fund, will remain the property of the grant recipient at all times.

Deadline: Monday 5 June 2017 (extended)
