Whether your business is a half-formed idea or a fully-fledged venture, we offer plenty of funding opportunities to support you.
Our funding is available to students (including Oxford Brookes' partner colleges), recent graduates and staff, and includes finance from both the university and external competitions and agencies. We also provide 1:1 support from a business mentor, to give you the expertise and encouragement you need. With this mentorship, we’ll help you to pitch your idea and guide you through critical areas of business, giving your venture the best chance of success.
