The entré Start-Up
How the entré Start-Up Challenge works
The entré Start-Up Challenge is a business development programme that runs over the second semester of the university year. Whether you have a developed business or just an idea, this is for you. You can apply here.
Applications open in mid-May and close in mid-July. Information/Drop-in Sessions are held via zoom.
There will be 15 successful applicants who will continue into the next stage of the competition. Stage Two will consist of a series of workshops, online check-ins and mentoring sessions with industry professionals to ensure the development of the participants’ business. Workshops will include speed mentoring as well as pitching tutorials. This will continue through July and August.
Competitors developing their business will prepare to draft a formalised business plan along with a pitch that will be presented to a panel of judges.
During stage two, the 15 teams are required to submit a business plan and present a 3-minute investment style pitch to the judging panel. From there, the winning top 5 ventures will be chosen. A short video summarising your venture will take place on pitch day also which will be used on social media for peoples' choice award.
