Calling all budding entrepreneurs…

Applications are now open for three different Converge Challenges, entrepreneurial programmes delivered by Converge, the leading entrepreneurial development programme for staff, students and recent graduates from Scottish Universities.

Converge Challenge is aimed at new or prospective businesses that demonstrate strong intellectual property, high commercial potential and scalability.

The Impact and Creative Challenges are for mission-led businesses and creative sector businesses, respectively. These have prizes of up to £29,000 (20k cash plus 9k in-kind) and £41,000 (20k cash plus 21k in kind), respectively.

Staff, students and recent graduates with an early-stage, innovative business idea are invited by the Careers Centre, Research & Innovation Services (RIS) and CAPOD to a special online event to hear from Dr Lissa Herron, Enterprise Outreach Manager to learn more about this exciting competition.
