Are you Student or recent graduate? Great business idea but need funding? Why not do something about it…
The RBS EnterprisingU competition has launched for the second year, with £40,000 worth of prizes!
The annual competition, created by Find Invest Grow (FIG) and sponsored by the RBS Group, offers a unique online platform for students to “road-test” their business ideas, while building the framework for a professional business plan at the same time.
The competition is open to students and graduates of the past 5 years: they don’t have to be economics graduates with business experience – anyone can enter. The platform enables students to explore the viability of their business idea, by asking the right questions and building the appropriate framework.
Entries will be reviewed and 20 semi-finalists will be selected to attend training workshops. Of these, up to 10 finalists will be chosen and will attend the final to pitch their business ideas to a room full of investors, with the chance of winning prizes of £25,000, £10,000, and £5,000.
The deadline for completed entrants is midnight on 19th July 2013. This is a fantastic opportunity to kick start your business idea, or give your startup a well earned boost!
