We need to ensure that you meet our funder’s eligibility requirements. Our funder is the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as mentioned in our about page
Based on your answers you do not currently seem to meet our funder (European Regional Development Fund) eligibility rules so we are unable to offer any support by RISE. ERDF stipulates that only small and medium sized enterprises meeting certain criteria can participate.
If your business circumstances change or you would like to speak to us about ERDF funding, your state aid or this decision contact us at RISE@brighton.ac.uk.
Even though you may be ineligible for support from RISE, the universities would still love to hear from you to see if there are any other ways we might be able to work with you.
