You can contact the Enterprise Team by emailing, or stopping by the Solent Futures Centre (RM001) any weekday throughout the year.

What we offer students and graduates

However big or small your idea, we are here to get you started.

Do you know that through Solent Futures you can pitch for up to £10,000 worth of business start up funding and business support?

This funding is available for innovative start up ideas including product development, as well as those of you that are already in business and want to grow it to the next level.

We can also support those wishing to start up as freelancers with smaller amounts of funding relevant to their needs.

This short video gives an overview of the support available for freelancers and business start-ups.
