Every year, USE runs an enterprising ideas competition. It’s an opportunity for students and alumni (up to five years from graduation) to get their ideas onto paper, tap into all the business advice services on offer at the Enterprise Zone… and maybe win some cash! This year, we had close to 80 plans submitted over three categories: 1. Commercial Concept; 2. Social Concept; and 3. Business Startup. Of those plans, external judges shortlisted nine finalists who would pitch at our Enterprise Celebration Dinner where the overall winners would receive their awards.
Business Startup – £2000 cash prize
Winner: Alex Gunn, Bike Rehab
