Taking your business to market

Are you a global graduate with an innovative start-up idea?

Do you have a promising idea that you can turn into a successful business?

Is your ambition to start up your own firm in a global business hub like the UK?

For overseas nationals seeking to start a new business in the UK, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has an exciting new programme – The Sirius Programme – aimed to attract the brightest and best final year students and graduate entrepreneurs to set up their businesses in the UK.

It offers you a place on one of the world’s best business accelerator programmes and also provides a £12,000 financial contribution. You will also receive additional support to gain clients, funding, mentoring and logistical help with relocating to the UK, including visa sponsorship.

The scheme is open to recent graduates or final year university students who have followed BA/BSc level, Master or Research degree programmes. Only teams of 2-4 members can apply, and at least half of the team must be non-British citizens.
