Launchpad Outreach is a fully funded business support programme initiated by Falmouth University. Modelled on the methodology that underpins our Launchpad Entrepreneurship MSc, the programme will help you explore the validity of market opportunities, build prototypes and develop new products, services or processes.
Welcome to fully funded business support
Launchpad Outreach aims to increase the growth capability of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) located in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We can support SMEs in any sector, developing internal capabilities to improve productivity, growth and create jobs in a sustainable manner within local, national and international markets.
What we do
We provide fully funded support and masters-level Continuing Professional Development.
Utilising the resources of Falmouth University, Launchpad Outreach can offer SMEs in Cornwall 12 hours of funded consultancy, in line with exploring a new market opportunity and developing a new product or service. This is fully funded support - at no cost to you.
We are currently supporting businesses by providing market research reports to assist in the research of market opportunities. This research could take a number of forms, so we work with you to create a brief to best suit you and your business's needs. We can also explore consumer trends, collate some competitor analysis and could also help form a survey to be distributed via the appropriate channels.
For businesses looking to develop physical products, Launchpad Outreach can also provide access to Falmouth University's in-house product design consultant, offering support such as concept development, computer assisted design modelling and prototyping. Further to this, we can also access a budget to fund industry experts where appropriate.
We also work with the university's other teams and resources to offer businesses comprehensive support and access to our Student Placement Scheme.
