What is the Pioneer Fund?
The Pioneer Fund is a grant programme for early stage commercial ideas and provides up to £500 for students and recent alumni to get out of the building, find customers, design business experiments and explore their ideas.
If you have an idea but are not sure what to do next, then the Pioneer Fund is your opportunity to get some money to explore the potential of your concept.
To receive a grant, apply online with details of your idea and tell us what you would plan to spend the grant on.
To be eligible for a grant, you must be a current registered Imperial College London student studying an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification or recent alumni from the last three years (Summer 2017).
Applications from students and teams who have not engaged with Enterprise Lab before will be prioritised.
Further information on eligibility can be found here: Pioneer Fund Terms & Conditions (2020)
