Huawei launches £30,000 Make It Possible Fund to back 3 British start-ups

The telecommunications giant will award £20,000 to one successful entrepreneur, with a further £5,000 awarded to two other businesses

Mobile phone giant Huawei has launched a £30,000 “Make It Possible Fund” to back three British start-ups.

Set up to support the 77% of Brits who are planning to fulfil their entrepreneurial ambitions this year, but are being held back by financial concerns, Huawei will award £20,000 to one successful entrepreneur, with a further £5,000 awarded to two other businesses.

 

Entrepreneurs can enter the competition by completing an online application form which asks the question: “What would you do with the Make it Possible Bursary?” – using no more than 500 words and one image to reflect their entry.

Steven Bartlett, the CEO of Social Chain and Huawei ambassador, said:

“Like Huawei, I want to champion creativity in the UK and know how important it is when you are looking to do something new to not only having funds available but also the confidence that comes from people believing in your ideas, which is why I am so pleased to be working with Huawei as they launch the Make it Possible Bursary.

“Everyone should be able to make their passion project a reality and Huawei’s bursary gives people a chance, whatever their goal to do just that.”
