Bright Ideas Competition

Win a cash prize of £200 for your bright business idea.

The competition is closed for applications

At the Masood Entrepreneurship Centre, we believe that anyone can have a bright idea and those bright ideas can come from anywhere, regardless of background. If you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate student here at The University of Manchester and have an idea – no matter how big or small - then you could get your hands on a £200 cash prize!

Last year we received a high number of entries covering all sorts of topics, from addressing the challenges associated with amateur film-making by creating a digital platform using Augmented Reality, to an environmental project aimed to reduce the impact of fast-fashion by rebranding the concept of second-hand garments as something on-trend.

The idea you enter is limited only by your imagination.

How to enter

  1. Read the Bright Ideas terms and conditions in full.
  2. Complete the online application form by Sunday, 1 November. This includes a 500 word summary of your idea - it might be easier if you type this in Word and then copy and paste onto the form.
  3. If shortlisted you’ll find out by Tuesday, 3 November 2020. You’ll then be invited to submit a poster giving a visual overview of your idea.
  4. Keep an eye on your emails! 10 students will win a £200 cash prize.
