Research and Knowledge Exchange (RAKE) Fund
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISBE is not in a position to offer any RAKE Funding for 2020.
The ISBE Research and Knowledge Exchange (RAKE) Fund provides financial support to new research activities from academics, third sector organisations, businesses, consultants and practitioners. The fund was created with the aim of assisting the exploration of issues, challenges and opportunities surrounding entrepreneurial activities and small firm performance and to encourage and promote cutting-edge research which is relevant to both the development of policy and practice.
Launched in 2009, RAKE has been kindly sponsored by several significant partners, including the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Barclays Bank, Lloyds Banking Group, the Federation of Small Business (FSB) and the British Academy of Management (BAM).
To enquire about RAKE partnership, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
