All participating students in the EIBF York competition have undergone a 10 week module on business innovation & entrepreneurship. This included practice pitching and feedback for 5 of those weeks.
The EIBF prize challenged students to stretch to a further degree of professionalism in the development and pitching of their business ideas. The stimulus of the prize money and the further opportunities offered by the scheme galvanised students competitively to perform at a level that seriously impressed all who attended the event, including the dragons and myself.
The Dragons have recommended that all the teams apply for the EIBF competition and commented that this was the best set of business ideas to date they had seen at this stage.
