University of Edinburgh
Following on the success of last year’s competition, the Edinburgh Innovations student entrepreneurship team ran the 2019 Business Ideas Competition for Engineering Students and Graduates sponsored by Engineers in Business.
The Business Ideas Competition for Engineering Students and Graduates is run annually by the University’s commercialisation service, Edinburgh Innovations, and invites students to pitch their business ideas and win up to £1,000 to launch them. There are three divisions of the Business Ideas competition - general, engineering and social enterprise.
The Business Ideas Competition is open to current students and recent graduates. It allows students to present innovative ideas even if they are an early-stage business or social enterprise. The competition provides a fantastic opportunity to find out if the ideas proposed are commercially viable and to learn how to turn the business ideas into reality.
