The STEAMhouse Funded Programme, also known as Phase 1.5, is open to sole traders and micro, small and medium-sized enterprises with a focus on four sectors:
Each month we select up to 20 applicants to become STEAMhouse members. Becoming a member currently gives you access to exclusive online events, bespoke technical and business support, remote prototyping facilities, and a wide network of existing members, academics and business support, at no cost to you.
Membership lasts for 12 months.
You will find full details of the programme, the different strands and eligibility in our INFO PACK. Please read through carefully before applying.
We strongly recommend you come along to a Pre-Application workshop before applying. Dates and booking information can be found on our EVENTS PAGE.
To join STEAMhouse you need to complete our ONLINE APPLICATION FORM which asks for information about your business, and a short proposal describing what you want to develop at STEAMhouse, what support you are looking for, and how membership will help you move your business forward.
The application deadline is 3pm on the last day of every month. We review applications in the first week of the month and aim to contact all applicants within three weeks with a decision.
Our selection panel meets each month to assess applications.
We are interested in ideas at all stages of development from concept onwards and recognize that some proposals will be highly speculative at the application stage. When reviewing applications, we assess them against the following criteria. The strongest applications directly address most, or all, of these areas :
Where possible we want to help, but we receive more proposals than we can support. If your application is not successful, we will offer advice on how to develop it ready for resubmission, suggest one of our workshops or signpost you to other support available locally.
