AMBS Ignition Funding Opportunity – NOW OPEN

We are pleased to announce the relaunch of the Ignition Awards that aim to inspire and further build on the spirit of enterprise and innovation within AMBS. Last year saw over 9 awards made and many of these projects are now actively moving forwards, one of which has already formed as a company.

We are now seeking to inspire the next generation of individuals or teams with entrepreneurial ideas:

  • Are you currently working or studying at AMBS or a recent graduate?
  • Is your idea likely to be an entrepreneurial or innovative solution to a business, societal or environmental problem?
  • We are particularly keen this year to receive your ideas in FinTech, LegalTech or Digital and Creative areas…


Funding from £500 – £2000 is available, for individuals to try out or grow their entrepreneurial ideas. This might mean finding out if your idea is viable, learning more about what is needed to develop the idea by testing the project on a small scale, right through to more robust road-testing of the idea. We also provide one to one support to assist you with your applications and informative workshops for successful applicants.


The funding opportunity provided by UMIP and MEC is open to all AMBS members of staff, research students (inc. DBA, MBA) and recent graduates (graduated within the last 2 years).
