RBS Inspiring Enterprise Fund applications open
The deadline for RBS Inspiring Enterprise Fund applications for the first round of funding is 19th October 2012 so you’ll have to hurry. The annual funding pot is £500,000 and the RBS Inspiring Enterprise Fund will accept applications twice a year. If you don’t manage to apply in October, keep your eyes peeled for the next announcement for applications.
Who can apply?
The aim of the RBS Inspiring Enterprise Fund is to support not-for-profit organisations. Investments will be made in new and existing programmes that are helping young people aged 13-30 years-old in enterprise. You can find out more about the criteria to submit an application for your organisation here.
How should I be helping young people in enterprise?
The RBS Inspiring Enterprise Fund recognises that there are many stages to the support a not-for-profit organisation may be providing for young people on an enterprise journey. Your organisation may be responsible for organising creative networking events, supporting young entrepreneurs and providing enterprise education or it may be helping young people aged 13-30 get set up in business.
More than just a pot of cash
In addition to a payment from the fund, successful applicants will also be able to take part in networking and partnership events. We’ve seen first-hand how amazing Pioneers are at networking and teaming up so we know that you’d all really make the most of the events as well as the funding.
