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 2020 have now been made and details of winners are given on this site. Applications for the 2021 cohort will open in early Autumn 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.
Tafflab and Covid-19
We have decided to start a new cohort but to still support the last cohort - those who joined in 2019 - who faced unprecedented difficulties in starting their own businesses.
Meet the team
Behind Tafflab lies a team of leaders, mentors and partners that supports it in its activities. Further details of each member can be found on the Trustees or Mentors page
