Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network Investment for your business

Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund

The Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund has given over £130k in support of new ventures

Funding from the Strathclyde Entrepreneurs Fund (SEF) is available to University of Strathclyde students, staff and alumni who've graduated within the last five years. It's a vital resource if you're looking for early-stage investment for your start-up or spin-out company.

How does it work?

Recipients are selected from a pipeline of existing Strathclyde entrepreneurs who've been working closely with either the Enterprise Team or the Commercialisation Team. If you are not already engaged with either of these teams, please get in touch by registering as a client.

Once you have been identified as a prospective recipient for SEF funding, a member of the team will ask you to complete an application for consideration. SEF's threshold is £50,000 per project, with final approval for all funding coming from the Director of Research & Knowledge Exchange Services.


If you have any initial questions about funding, get in touch Gillian MacAulay, our SEF Fund Manager.
