Student and Graduate Enterprise

Whether you have a business idea, a social or environmental mission, as skill that could turn you into a freelancer or simply want to improve your entrepreneurial skills, Keele University provides support to help you turn your ideas into reality. 

See below for an insight into today's graduate enterprise market.

Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Fund

We recognise the particularly challenging situation for our students and graduates at the moment, so, thanks to our partner Santander Universities, we have been able to launch additional funding to support enterprising students and graduates.

If you have a start-up business, social enterprise, community project, environmental initiative, skills that you could turn into freelance income, are self-employed (or have an idea for any of these!), you can apply for a grant of up to £2,000 from Keele University and Santander. 
Successful applicants will receive the cash grant, and support to give you the best chance of business success. This opportunity is open to Keele University students, and graduates from the last two years who are allowed to run a business in the UK.
