A new year brings new inspiration and at the Masood Enterprise Centre (MEC), based within the Alliance Manchester Business School, you have the opportunity to get your innovative business ideas off to a Flying Start

Business ideas

Are you a member of staff with an innovative business idea? Then apply today for a 'Flying Starter' award of up to £2,000 to test its feasibility.

Awards are available every month until the end of the current academic year.

Funding from £500 – £2,000 is available for you to test your idea, find out if it is viable, learn more about what is needed to progress the idea and even create a prototype product.

Support can be provided to assist you with your application form.

For successful award winners, informative workshops are available to hone your business cases together with a range of mentoring opportunities to ensure your enterprises continue to flourish.
