Are you over 18?

Do you have a business idea and want help to develop it?

If you answered 'Yes!' to those questions - we need you! 

We are looking to recruit 14 candidates with a business idea who would like help to create Suffolk's next start up. The 14 lucky candidates will compete to win £5,000 plus a year’s ongoing coaching from the Business Growth Coaches Network, a year's accountancy from Abbeygate Accountants, a free website with ecommerce support from Azexis's Suffolk-built software Evance plus one year's membership to the Institute of Directors.

What's the commitment?
Each month our candidates will be set a task to complete to test their skills, such as marketing, planning, sales, fundraising, influencing. Each task will be in support of a Suffolk based charity to support their cause.

The winning candidate will be revealed in early December 2019.

If you'd like to enter, simply register and we'll be in touch soon.

Do you know someone who would benefit from this opportunity? Please share and spread the word with anyone who might be interested.
