Venture Further Awards 2024 – Information Session 14th December

The Masood Entrepreneurship Centre (MEC) is pleased to announce that the Venture Further Awards Competition is now open!

Our start-up competition has a £100,000 prize pot, where business ideas could win up to £15,000 in one of our five categories: Environment, Healthcare, Services, Social & Technology.


If you are interested in finding out more, then come along to our information session on Thursday 14th December in the Enterprise Zone (AMBS) from 5-6pm. The event will also be streamed online for those who cannot attend in person.

The Session will include a short presentation about the competition and application process, and then plenty of time for you to ask the MEC team questions.

Aren’t sure whether your idea is developed enough? Can’t decide which category your business fits into? Need help with elements of your application? Then this is the perfect event for you.
