If you are invited to complete the Stage 2 application form, but miss the deadline, your application may be carried over to the next funding round three months' later, if our investment programmes remain unchanged. In this case there is no need to start again at Stage 1.
You can submit your Stage 1 application at any time upto 11th December 2013. We aim to respond to Stage 1 applications within two weeks of receipt, so the later you apply, the less time you will have to complete and submit the Stage 2 form before the Stage 2 deadline.
After the 11th December our Stage 1 application process will be temporarily suspended and all open applications will be closed. Please look out for our new investment programmes in the new year.
