Launch Pad is connecting our community with creative projects and ideas that they can be passionate about, helping students, staff, alumni and supporters explore shared projects that capture our vision of being the university for Creativity, Culture, and Enterprise.

You can use this site to raise funds to start up your creative venture; be it an event, a campaign, a business venture, or building a prototype.

How It Works

For students - we provide crowdfunding support to students via three routes:

  • If your use is part of curricular activity like an assessed project or degree show then contact us and connect in your course leader
  • If your use is a personal entrepreneurial idea and not part of your degree then enter either the Create it or Plan it challenges to gain access and feedback before you get started
  • If your use is for a new or existing Students’ Union club or society then contact us and we’ll engage the Students’ Union

For staff - If your use is directly linked to your teaching, research, or professional role please contact us direct.
