Students with a commercial or social enterprise idea are being encouraged to enter the inaugural Liverpool Start-Up Competition.
The competition, which is being introduced for the first time this year, encourages undergraduate student entrepreneurs to submit a business pitch to a panel of judges.
Running from October 2018, the competition is open to all University of Liverpool undergraduates, who can enter as individuals or as a group.
The competition has three stages. The first involves submitting a PowerPoint pitch deck, a short pitch video and financial plan documents. Stage two sees successful entrants’ pitch videos hosted online before they are required to run a marketing campaign for votes. The final stage will see the highest voted six teams pitch their business idea to an invited panel of judges in front of a live audience.
Whilst many will be entering to win, the competition has been welcomed as a way for students to gain significant business support, professional development and potential customer interest.
The prizes, which have all been donated by companies, include:
