About this fund

The primary objective of StartupMull is to help promising new businesses on Mull to get off the ground by awarding small but transformational grants.  The fund was inspired by the excitement, frustration, joy, and sleepless nights which go with setting up and running new businesses on and off the island.    

Grants between £5,000 and £10,000 are available. Businesses must be based on Mull or the surrounding Islands

Purpose of this fund

Established by the StartupMull Trust, the purpose is to grow the resilience of the Island of Mull and its immediately surrounding islands by improving the economic infrastructure through the support of new business start-ups that benefit the Island community.
