Step 4: Investment

When you're ready, we can help your business prepare for and find the right investment. The Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund (SEF) is the University’s own investment fund which staff, students and alumni can access for their innovative ventures. Supporters of the University offer up capital for the creation, development and early stage growth of these businesses and returns are reinvested in the fund. 

More information

It's important to note that it's not possible to put a fixed timeframe on how long each step should take as every opportunity varies. After your opportunity has been assessed, a business advisor will inform you on next steps and an estimated timeframe which suits your progression.
