McKinsey & Co. is launching the 2012 McKinsey Innovate: realise your social enterprise business plan competition. This is a national competition for students at UK universities that aims to promote creative and entrepreneurial spirit by supporting a student team to launch a business that benefits society.

This is a unique opportunity to create something of your own, that makes a real difference to the issue you choose to address. The winning team will receive seed funding and support from McKinsey consultants to transform their idea into a real social enterprise.  Participants will have the opportunity to get skilled up in project planning and business development through workshops and guidance provided throughout the competition. Above all else, it is a chance to test your ideas and have great fun with your team!

Last years winners, Fertilait, now have a global patent for converting dairy waste into organic fertiliser. We are continuing to support them launching their product- check out their entry video as a taster to the competition: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150177805664961

We will be holding the campus launch on 31st January at University of Coventry in Lecture Room 4, Department of Engineering. All are welcome to find out more about the programme. In the meantime information and the application portal is now available at http://www.innovate2012.mckinsey.com/. First round applications close on the 29th of February.
