Bathtub Bursary for New Entrepreneurs

The Bathtub Bursary programme supports budding entrepreneurs from low opportunity backgrounds or in difficult circumstances to start and grow a sustainable business.

The six-month programme provides workspace, start-up support, advice and connections to help individuals across London develop their enterprise skills and start a business.
