Napkin Challenge

Shoelaces that tie themselves? Flying motorbikes? A toothbrush that brushes your whole mouth at once? Whatever your idea is, entré want to hear it!!


What's it about?

The Napkin Challenge was inspired by the idea that any idea no matter how small or wherever it was conceived, in class, on the toilet, standing outside a food truck, could be a valid entrepreneurial project!

The rules are simple,  all you have to do is tell us your idea and be in to win!!


The themes for 2020

Best Student Hack

An idea that has made student life easier for you/ that you think could benefit students.

Social Enterprise

An idea aimed at improving the community and/or environment.


An idea that Elon Musk would probably want to hear about.


Got an idea that doesn’t fit under any of these categories? That’s great, we’d love to hear it!
