£1k Boot Camp Provides Advice and Inspiration

On 23 November 2006, CUE held the £1k Boot camp to provide practical advice on writing winning summaries for the £1k Business Ideas Competition. Over 150 people packed the lecture theatre to hear from distinguished guest speakers including James Hay, co-founder of previous winner Splashpower, and Walter Herriot OBE, Managing Director of the St John's Innovation Centre. A lively networking session followed, helping potential entrants to find teams.

CUE has made available via its web site both a video comprising highlights of the £1k Boot Camp and a short description of the structure and content of an executive summary. The deadline for entering the £1k Business Ideas Competition is midnight on 11 December 2006.
