Bright Ideas student ideas competition
Bright Ideas (formerly Venture Out) is Masood Entrepreneurship Centre’s annual student ideas competition where you have the opportunity to get your hands on a cash prize to help take your idea forward. If you have an idea for a new business, a social project, the application of technology, or something completely different - we want to know about it.
There are 10 prizes of £200 up for grabs!
Bright Ideas 2020 is closed for entries
At the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre, we believe that anyone can have a bright idea and those bright ideas can come from anywhere, regardless of background. If you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate student here at The University of Manchester and have an idea – no matter how big or small - then you could get your hands on a £200 cash prize!
Last year we received a high number of entries covering all sorts of topics, from addressing the challenges associated with amateur film-making by creating a digital platform using Augmented Reality, to an environmental project aimed to reduce the impact of fast-fashion by rebranding the concept of second-hand garments as something on-trend.
The idea you enter is limited only by your imagination.
How to enter
- Read the Bright Ideas terms and conditions in full.
- Complete the online application form by Sunday 1 November. This includes a 500 word summary of your idea - it might be easier if you type this in Word and then copy and paste onto the form.
- If shortlisted you’ll find out by Tuesday 3 November 2020. You’ll then be invited to submit a poster giving a visual overview of your idea.
- Keep an eye on your emails! 10 students will win a £200 cash prize.
The 2019 winners were announced at an awards ceremony at the University in December.
