Benefactors’ Fund for Entrepreneurship
This fund was set up to support students and graduates of Newcastle University to develop entrepreneurial skills. It provides:
- funding to support teaching and research
- training to help small businesses to grow
- grants to start up companies
We have the potential to make a huge difference to the enterprise and entrepreneurship agenda of the region and beyond.
This initiative is the latest addition to Newcastle University’s START UP scheme. It was set up by the Careers Service to support student and graduate entrepreneurs.
It is leading to a greater number of Newcastle University students choosing to stay in the North East after graduating as well as benefitting our local economy as a whole.
