Mint Formations opened the pitch competition to all entrants early in November. The winner will be awarded a £1,000 cash prize to go towards their tuition costs or starting up their dream business venture.
Anyone over the age of 16 who is currently studying a business course in the UK is eligible to enter. Courses include university degrees, A-Levels and other types of qualifications relating to business.
Those studying online courses or long-distance learning can also enter the competition, as can those studying a non-specific qualification that includes business-related modules — for example, a sports studies degree with modules in business management.
To enter, students need to submit a written business pitch to Mint Formation’s panel of judges, of a maximum of 1000 words. Judges are looking for exciting ideas and new concepts that could realistically be established as a modern-day business. Guidelines of what to include in the pitch include:

Our hope is that our competition will help uncover amazing new talents and that the grant will be used to ensure their dreams become a reality.”
