Fresh Ideas

FRESH IDEAS is Scotland’s longest running national student enterprise competition for ideas at an early stage. The competition is designed exclusively for students and recent* graduates of all subjects.

Fresh ideas gives you everything you need to make a difference!

If you have an idea, then FRESH IDEAS is for you.

(*within 2 years of graduating)

You can now enter Fresh Ideas ALL YEAR!

Stage 1 will be judged 10 months of the year with monthly prizes. The monthly winners and best of the other entries will move forward to stage 2, which runs in February and March. The stage 2 prizes? £1200 and a personalised package of in-kind support!

Don’t worry if you don’t know a lot about business. That’s what we’re here for! The process is designed to help you develop your business know-how and show you how to turn a good idea into a successful new business. So even if you’re not a winner, you’ll still benefit from our help and be in a great position to take the next steps.
