Got a Cracking Business Idea?
Our annual Business Competition is now open for entries. There is Â£8,000 up for grabs and the competition will be open to anyone aged 16 or over who lives within the UHI catchment area (that includes the Highlands and Islands, Perthshire and Moray) or to any UHI student. There is no business plan required and you are only one idea and four questions away from a fantastic cash prize.
Apply online by clicking here to answer 4 simple questions about your business idea along with a short summary. Over the years, entrants have gone on to run successful businesses and this may be the first step in your journey to join them.
You can save your idea to complete your entry later but your entry won’t be included in the competiton until you press the ’Submit’ button and receive your confirmation email that the entry has been submitted.
If you have any queries regarding the process or wish more information please email email@example.com or you can speak to a member of the CREATE team by phoning 01463 273267.
A business idea can begin with a conversation about what’s missing locally or from your experience as a customer. An idea can also start from your work experience or from your own hobbies or interests. It may be that you have more than one idea for a business and, again, this competition allows you to enter as many ideas for a business as you wish.
Make a start on your idea now as the closing date for entries is 3 November 2016.
