The programme is collaborative and will help you, as a budding Brunel entrepreneur to understand and develop all elements of your business idea from exploring customer needs to how to protect your idea.  You will also be developing your transferable skillset throughout. Through one-to-one mentorship, the programme will guide you to see the big picture and to fill in gaps you may not have known were there. It will also help you to solve problems relating to your start-up. 

The programme has been designed so that you can drive the speed and progress yourself. Our highly professional team of specialist mentors will be available to you at your request – you get their help when you want it. An opportunity not to be missed! 

 

Who can join the Brunel Start-up Incubator programme? 

Brunel Start-up incubator programme is available to early stage start-ups with a viable business venture founded by Brunel student(s), researcher or recent graduate. There will be some spaces for graduates over 3 years too. 

 

Your business can be in any industry, and if you have a team, we allow up to 4 members to take part together.  

 

We have limited spaces on the programme. These spaces will be awarded to the most promising ventures and entrepreneurial students and recent graduates.   

 

For your best chance of getting a space on our incubator, you will already have researched your idea thoroughly. You are likely to have completed a Business Model Canvas to a high level and be able to demonstrate that:  

 

  • you have shown passion and commitment in making your business happen
  • you will be able to evidence your interest in entrepreneurship 
  • you have identified a gap in the market and researched competitors   
  • you have tested some features of your product or service with potential users to demonstrate demand 
  • you have taken steps to prepare yourself and establish the practicalities involved in developing your venture and or running your business 

 

How to apply 

To register your interest, you will need to have a one-to-one consultation with your Entrepreneur Hub business consultant.  

 

Your business consultant will assess your readiness and suitability for the programme. At the end of the meeting, you will either be invited to apply or be given advice on what you need to do to be considered. Request a 30-minute meeting with your consultant by completing this form.
