Need cash for your start-up? Why haven’t you entered the BVC already!

The closing date for our annual competition is fast approaching. The Business Venture Competition aims to give students, graduates and staff members of De Montfort University the opportunity to kick start their business ideas.








It doesn’t matter what faculty you are from or what your idea is. Your idea doesn’t need to be a new invention or innovative technology; you could simply be a budding photographer or illustrator looking to become self-employed. There’s cash prizes and start-up support worth thousands of pounds up for grabs across three award categories:

The Business Award

Technology and Innovation Award

Creativity Award

The winner of the CEO Enterprise Award is chosen by the audience, it will be presented to one of the finalists after a live vote at the ceremony.

If you’re a student, graduate or staff member of DMU then we would fully welcome you to take part in this year’s competition. All you need to do to enter stage one of the competition is complete a short application form.

If you are shortlisted to the next round, you will write a business plan for your idea which we will be on hand to help with!

So what are you waiting for?? Applications close Friday 7th February.
