Description

Calling all budding entrepreneurs!

Founders of the Future is coming to Latymer Upper School to run a workshop for budding entrepreneurs! At the end of the evening you will have all the information you need to enter The F Factor - an exciting start-up competition for pupils and young adults, now in its fifth year.
The workshop will give you an understanding of the type of ideas that the F Factor would like to see submitted to the competition, and how to bring these ideas to life. The F Factor gives young people a chance to win £10,000 equity-free cash and to pitch in front of the most successful tech entrepreneurs in Europe, during Founders Forum.

The F Factor aims to encourage the talent of tomorrow to think about how to help solve the big problems of the future. The Founders of the Future team will run the workshop to help pupils:

  • learn about the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to help them build ground-breaking start-ups that support the Goals

  • choose a global problem and submit an idea that may help solve it

  • learn how to use 4IR [fourth industrial revolution] technology to promote their idea

  • design a prototype app with the help of Marvel (a collaborative design platform)

  • show their app to other participants and gather some feedback

  • present their idea to the Founders of the Future team

  • submit their business idea through the F Factor competition submission platform

We hope to see you on Thursday 7 February!

More about the F Factor:
Organised by Founders of the Future and now in its fifth year, The F Factor is a UK-wide start-up competition with two categories for 14-18 year olds and 19-25 year olds. You can sign up for the F Factor now at ffactor.me - the deadline to enter is 17th of March 2019.
The competition is about providing young aspiring entrepreneurs with tools, skills-training and context to bring their ideas to life and present them to experts, as well as opportunities to collaborate with like-minded peers, interact with mentors and gain access to work experiences.
The competition is underpinned with active entrepreneurship education for students and graduates to harness cutting-edge innovation and shape them into solutions for the world’s most pressing problems.
During the first four editions of The F Factor, £60,000 of equity-free cash was distributed to the winners and judges included Simon Cowell, Dame Natalie Massenet, Baroness Martha Lane-Fox and Sir Charles Dunstone.
