Introduced in 2008, the UCL Bright Ideas Awards aim to help bridge the gap that many new companies find themselves in when they search for their first funding.
In the university context, this is a particular problem for
those businesses that emerge from unconventional beginnings or where
they have a seed of an idea, but are not yet ready for venture capital
The winners of these awards will share up to a total of
£50,000 in funding that will be offered as a loan to help get their
businesses up and running. Specifically, it is hoped that the money will
allow the winners to reach the next crucial milestone in their
development, whether that be the first prototype or support for landing
the first customer.
The Bright Ideas Awards are awarded to companies that are being created by UCL undergraduate and post-graduate students.
Applicants must submit a business plan for their proposition, including specific details of how the Bright Ideas funds would be used to finance the business development. Applicants are strongly advised to discuss the contents of their business plan with one of the UCL Advances Student Business Advisors before submitting; E: firstname.lastname@example.org
