Our Dragons’ Den style event aimed at supporting students and graduate with bright ideas.Up to 10 start-ups will be pitching at the live event to secure up between £2000-£5000 in start-up funding. The participants will also have the opportunity to further develop their business ideas, some in tandem with their studies, over a period of 12 months, supported by mentorship from experienced business entrepreneurs and advisers.
Students explore the practical aspects of new venture creation, through presenting (through a 5-minute ‘pitch’) their business idea and receiving feedback from the Dragons - business people experienced in starting, growing and advising small businesses.
