Manchester Enterprise Center Venture Further
May 08, 2019

Manchester Enterprise Centre is looking to support the next big start-up from The University of Manchester through Venture Further 2018. Venture Further invites students and recent alumni to submit a business proposal to an expert judging panel of enterprise and business professionals. The competition allows for individuals or groups to receive expert feedback on their business ideas and gives them an opportunity to win a £10,000 cash injection to get their business off the ground.

Venture Further is a business start-up competition, not a business plan competition. We are looking for proposals for new business ideas which have the greatest potential to succeed, not for the best formatted business plan. This means that a credible implementation plan is as important as evidencing and validating a real opportunity; be it social and / or commercial.

There are four categories to enter: Business, Social, Digital, Research.

The Venture Further competition takes place in two stages; the First round and the Final round. Up to four entries per category from the First round may be selected to proceed to the Final round. Following presentations to a final judging panel, the winners of the first (£10,000) and second (£2,500) prizes in each category will be decided. Winners will be announced at the Venture Further awards ceremony which will take place on Thursday, 26 April 2018 at The Whitworth Hall.
