Do you have an original idea, event, or project that just needs some from funding? 💰

The Students’ Union has created a funding opportunity for entrepreneurial and innovative students to help you on your way to making your dream a reality. The Union Enterprise Fund means you could receive up to £500.

Previous winner Paul Musa founded his online search platform What&Where, with help from the Union’s Enterprise Fund. After attending a Law fair, Paul met with Sarah Rogers, a representative from the Student Enterprise team. She introduced him to the various funding opportunities at the University, which resulted in the Union’s Enterprise Fund awarding Paul £500.

The funding from SUSU allowed his team to begin to build their online service which offers students a tool to locate products and services from local businesses in their university city.

“This means that for students, rather than relying on erroneous search results, clunky swathes of information on search engines, the hope of word of mouth reaching them and travelling home to the communities that they are familiar with” says Paul. “This not only makes the search process simpler and hassle-free but it also makes it more rewarding and more community-centric.”
