We think that competitions are great! When you enter them it helps to refine your business idea; and you may even win some prize money that will help fund your business. Check out SIE’s national competitions and other competitions open to you in this section.
Getting competition ready
Don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about business. That’s what we’re here for. If you have an idea for a great product, service, or a way to make the world a better place and the determination to succeed, we will help you develop your business know-how and show you how to turn a good idea into a brilliant business.
We run Pitching Workshops that will help you perfect your presentation so that you feel confident in front of the judges.
The process we build into the second stage of our own competitions gives you help and support to perfect your business idea. We run a full day of active workshops and expert speaker sessions designed to increase entrants skills and business knowledge. After attending this day, we even allow entrants to revise their entry and resubmit it.
SIE’s business advisors are always happy to talk to people about their ideas, and they will even advise you on how to structure your competition entry. You can get in touch with a business advisor at any time – contact your local advisor now.
