Digital Innovation in the Public Sector

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

ideaIf you’re a small business in the digital sector, then a newly launched comp by BT and TechHub may be well worth a look.

The Digital Innovation in the Public Sector initiative is seeking small companies throughout the UK that are developing digital products and services that in turn can significantly benefit and make a difference to our public services – health, education, wherever.

In essence they are looking for small businesses which have:

  • An innovation which can help change the lives of UK citizens
  • A product or service which supports the Digital by Default agenda
  • An awareness of both the problem and the solution in terms of originality, creativity and innovation
  • The ability to collaborate with BT from a technical and operational perspective
  • A full understanding of the business’ competitive position
  • A team which comprises the experience, knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for long term success

Applicants must complete the online application form and ideally also submit a short video where they outline their product or service and how it has the potential to change lives. The video (although optional) should be looked at as a way of really selling the product or service and in a sense bringing the innovation to life.

The prizes up for grabs include:

£15,000 cash, 6 months BT Support and 6 months TechHub membership for the overall winner and two runners-up prizes of £7,500 cash.

Not to be sniffed at then!

If you’re interested in applying, you’ve got until Sunday 22nd February to do so.

Best of luck to any of you who do!
