About Ysgol Fenter y Cardi
Do you want to start your own business?
If you have not been self-employed or have not received European Funding and live in Ceredigion you are eligible for this scheme.
Ysgol Fenter y Cardi supports innovative business ideas and will consider the issue of displacement during the application process.
The bursary is a local funding source set up to provide funding assistance for either individuals or groups of people who intended starting a new business or community enterprise. Ysgol Fenter y Cardi will also offer business mentoring to assist you with your new venture.
You can apply for up to £1,000 (80% of the costs) to set up your business. The bursary can be used to pay for:
Training – not main stream courses
- Equipment – that’s essential for the start-up of your business
The remaining 20% is made up of volunteer time, where a friend or family member assists you in starting your business.
Support is available from Antur Business to develop your business plan, cash flows and completing your application form.
