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
  • Marketing

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.
