£1k Challenge

The competition is now open! Submit your idea to our judges until January 20th to: 1ksubmission@cue.org.uk.

Our second sub competition is for you to develop your business opportunity and write an executive summary of no more than 1500 words. The £1k prizes are awarded to well-presented propositions that show clear market potential and competitive advantages. You will need to clearly identify and quantify your market niche. To help you do this we have the £1K training event, organized in November, which is free to attend for all members. There, you can learn about the judging criteria and have opportunities to ask specific questions in one-to-one surgery sessions with business mentors. You may also request for a professional mentor to be attached to your team and guide you as you develop your idea. Up to 10 cash prizes of £1k each will be awarded and winners and runners-up get free entry to the £5k competition.
