Welcome to the 2021 Student Entrepreneurship Competition!
This competition will help
students and recent graduates take their business ideas forward by
securing cash prizes to invest in their ventures.
This year we are excited to be able to award 10 businesses with £1500 each! To identify these winning businesses the judges panel will ask students to use a platform called Validate to explain their business models and present a portfolio.
Participant will have the months of December, January and February to develop and test their business models in the Validate platform and judges will review their portfolios in March.
Eligible winners will have the chance to be the Open University’s submission to the 2021 Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards.
Open University students are eligible to enter the competition if they are resident in the UK and currently studying at undergraduate or postgraduate level, or have graduated on or after 31 January 2019 at undergraduate level or above. Employees of The Open University are not eligible to enter.
