CEDAR start-up support

CEDAR has worked with many people who have business ideas, helping them to realise their dream of starting a business venture and has offered financial and mentoring support to Anglia Ruskin and local start-up businesses throughout different schemes that we deliver and manage.

Initiatives like The Big Pitch and The Little Pitch are business start-up competitions for students and the CEDAR Fellowship Scheme offers financial and mentoring support to new local businesses. Start-up businesses are mentored by CEDAR entrepreneurs in Anglia Ruskin’s StartUpLab.

In November 2014, the work of CEDAR underpinned the award of The Times Higher Education Entrepreneurial University of the Year.
