Venture Further business start-up competition 2017

Venture Further is a business start-up competition organised by the University of Manchester and supported by Waters Corporation, Manchester Science Partnerships and Jacobs.

Venture Further 2017 (VF17) applications are currently open.




29 Mar 2017


There are four prize categories:
Business: Businesses that have commercial potential via new products or services
Social: Businesses that improve the lives of people and communities
Digital: Businesses that apply digital technologies to generate new experiences and innovative business opportunities
Research: Businesses that focus on the application of university-based research to real-world problems and needs typically with some form of intellectual property at the heart of the business

There are two cash prizes in each category that will go towards developing your business.
1st - £10,000
2nd - £2,500

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
