Chloe Henning - Dip App

“The Santander Enterprise Fund was enormously helpful as it was awarded to my business at the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. We used it to pay a postgrad Ulster University student to develop a website and also to cover early hosting fees. This led to quicker development times without sacrificing quality whilst also giving an opportunity to a fellow UU student. As a result, our voucher app, dip is now available to download on iOS and Android. My team and I are very grateful to UU Enterprise for their continued support.”

Sarah McAnallen - Ezi Sock

"The Santander Enterprise Fund was a massive help to my business; I used the grant to buy materials to manufacture 50 products. I brought these products with me to a tradeshow which allowed me to showcase my company on an international level. I then sold the remaining products online. This fund has allowed me to have a risk-free soft launch in which I received valuable feedback from my customers."
