Venture Competition 2017

This year for the Venture Competition 2017, entrepreneurial students at Brunel University had the opportunity to compete for a prize of up to £5,000 to kick start their business idea.

Students participated in a Venture training workshop held by the Innovation Hub before submitting their applications for the Venture Competition.

Eight finalists were short-listed from over 90 submissions and the finalists were invited to pitch their business ideas in front of a panel of business experts, we also gave two finalists a chance to pitch their ideas over Skype .
