Exeter University Crowdfunder races past £12k
An Exeter University Crowdfunding Campaign to help student entrepreneurs stay in the city after graduation, has raced to its first milestone of £12,000 in less than a week.
Exeter’s GEM (Graduate Entrepreneur Maintenance) Fund will cover student entrepreneurs’ living costs, idea development and marketing. There will also be a new incubation space at the University’s Innovation Centre to offer graduate entrepreneurs work space, advice, support, skills training and technical facilities.
Thanks to a donation of £5,000 from Exeter based property company, Eagle One, the campaign has reached its minimum target. This will be matched with a further £1,000 by Santander Universities.
