Santander helps you get access to funding for your business or even for your first employee, also running Entrepreneurship Awards.
Since 2011, Santander has held an annual business pitching competition called the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards. These awards are aimed at giving a financial boost to student and graduate business ventures in their early stages from our UK partner universities.
Participants can win a range of prizes including seed funding, mentoring and start-up support. Since the competition’s launch, we’ve given away more than £340,000 to entrepreneurs from across the UK.
The competition is divided into two categories: Technology businesses – entries should have hardware and/or software central to the businesses value proposition and Non-technology businesses – entries should have a value proposition that is not primarily based around hardware and/or software.
