Resident Entrepreneurs Application

The Resident Entrepreneur Programme is part of the Creative Informatics, which aims to bring the city's world-class creative industries and tech sector together, utilising innovative data-driven technologies to develop ground-breaking new products, businesses and experiences. 

Creative Informatics is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Industrial Strategy Creative Clusters programme, the Scottish Funding Council and the City Region Deal Data Driven Innovation Programme. Creative Informatics is delivered by the University of Edinburgh working in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University, CodeBase and Creative Edinburgh. 

This application form is for "Resident Entrepreneurs", individuals or small businesses who would like to apply for funding and support. Due to ongoing social distancing regulations we are not usually matching Resident Entrepreneurs to Host Organisations at present. However, in this call we are pleased to be including one special residency with Marchmont House - please indicate on the form if you would like to be considered for this. If you are interested in becoming a Host Organisation in the future or have any related questions, please get in touch with the programme team via the Creative Informatics website

Please complete all the questions in the application form, you can save the form and return at anytime, but please ensure you note and save the URL that will be generated to do this. The application form consists of specific project questions followed by background questions relating to your business profile and activities which start on page 5. 

The closing date is Wednesday 19th May, 2021 at 5pm.

Guidance notes are provided within the application form. Further guidelines, the selection criteria, and a PDF version of the application form are also available on the Creative Informatics website, if you would like to download and review the questions before completing the form.
