Congratulations to students from Epping Forest, Hackney and Redbridge campuses who have been selected as finalists in this year’s Big Idea Challenge.
The Big Idea Challenge is a competition for college students who dream about starting their own businesses one day. Students submit their ideas to London Metropolitan University and take part in a bootcamp, hosted by Natwest, to develop the ideas and learn how to pitch from incredible mentors. Finally, the team with the best business ideas create a short video which will be voted on by the public.
The students’ hard work is done, and the voting is now open! The idea with the most votes will be crowned Big Idea Challenge 2021 People’s Choice winner at the virtual awards night on Thursday 27 May.
