Do you dream of developing your own business?

Do you have an idea but lack the funds and the expertise to take it further?

What we do

We provide awards to put business ideas into practice. This is not just an enterprise competition - its about creating a real business. Our partners at the RSA and Colleges will provide mentors to assist award winners.

How we select ideas

The awards for 2019 have now been made and details of winners are given on this site. Applications for the 2020 cohort will open in mid-2020.

What we expect

There is no restriction on the business focus, but it should benefit both those involved and have some (not necessarily all) of the following features:
- Be sustainable;
- May create employment for others in the future;
- Could have the potential to be spreadable (it could be taken to another location);
- Have known demand for the product or service.
