Are you a budding entrepreneur? Think you’ve got the next big idea? Want some financial start-up support to help realise your dreams?

Then enter the Swan’s Den.


What is Swan’s Den?

The University of Lincoln Students’ Union, in partnership with the University of Lincoln, is eager to find the next big thing on campus. We’re looking for talented individuals who can handle the heat, to pitch their idea to a panel of experts with the hopes being awarded their requested amount of cash towards funding their business.


How does it work?

You will be required to complete an application on our website which will be assessed by our panel. Should you be chosen to present your idea, you’ll be assigned a University academic who will help coach you through the elements of a successful pitch, and prepare you for the live panel. The judges will confer over your pitch and, should you be successful, you’ll be awarded the money you have pitched for (maximum £2,000), and assigned a business professional who will help make your dream a reality.


Think you’ve got what it takes?
