Response by Dave Jarman, Head of Enterprise Education, University of Bristol:

"Totally depends on the type of business you are in – some stages are very sector-specific. But do proof-of-concept before you even start thinking of fundraising."

Response by Kelly Smith, Head of Enterprise, University of Huddersfield:

"This is a good place to start: https://www.gov.uk/starting-up-a-business

Also, see if your University has a business start-up unit and if they run events that can help."
