Event description

Description

Whether you’ve got a great idea you want to make happen, or simply want to learn more about thinking creatively and developing innovative business concepts – StartUp Sussex is the programme for you.

You could have a groundbreaking product, a world-changing website, the next killer app, or a plan to make a difference through social enterprise.

StartUp Sussex is open to all students currently enrolled on undergraduate or postgraduate courses at the University of Sussex, as well as anyone who has completed a degree at the university within the past 3 years. Students and graduates from all subject areas are welcome to apply.

In the first phase of the programme the weekly 2-hour workshops will provide you with the tools to identify a model that works, before you embark on writing a business plan to grow your enterprise.

Phase two of the scheme begins in the spring term. This is a competition based upon the creation of a business plan and a presentation to a funding panel. The six candidates with the best business models, as selected by the StartUp Sussex judges, will return for further workshops and one-to-one support, with the aim of shaping a business plan from their model.

In April, the top three enterprises, as selected by the panel, will win the StartUp Sussex Award worth up to £10,000 to help develop their business, with the ultimate goal of generating enough income to pay a salary within a year. The winners are announced at the annual StartUp Sussex awards ceremony, also in April.
