About Venture Further

Applications for the Venture Further Awards 2024 Competition are now open!

Turn your ideas into reality and win significant early-stage funding to start your own business. It’s not all about the cash though. This competition will introduce you to a world of support programmes, workshops, mentors and networks to grow your ideas. If you have a viable business proposal then get involved.

Your entry needs to be a viable and credible business proposal that has the potential to succeed. If your entry is successful, you will be asked to pitch your business proposal to a panel of expert judges for a chance to win one of the cash prizes.
