Kickstarter Award

Give your start-up business the Kickstart it needs.

The Kickstarter Fund offers you the opportunity to validate and test your assumptions of the market as you begin to develop your idea. Sitting alongside this is a package of support from the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre (MEC) team built around developing the idea together with enhancing your skills as an entrepreneur.


Funding of up to £2000 is available to test your entrepreneurial ideas in the market. The opportunity is open on a monthly rolling basis with the closing date on the last Friday of the month.


The Kickstarter funding opportunity is open to University of Manchester students and recent graduates only.
