Startacus looks at the Lloyds TSB Enterprise Awards
by Startacus Admin
Seeking to recognise the very best of university enterprise, the Lloyds TSB Enterprise Awards returns for a second year with a £50k fund for the overall winner too!
It’s a shame that for some of us, being a self starter comes a little too late - but for those of you who are currently still at University or up to 5 years out, this competition must surely float the boat if you have an enterprising and innovative business to enter.
The 2013 Enterprise Awards aims to celebrate innovation, drive and dedication and will provide winners with national recognition, business support and a cash prize to invest in their business. (That bit we got from their own website!).
You can enter the awards if you founded or co-founded your own business; you are a current university student, or have graduated within the past five years, have a business based in England, Scotland or Wales and your business has been trading for more than one year. (Why not Northern Ireland we are not 100% sure - apart from the fact that they don’t seem to have any branches of Lloyds there.)
The application process seems pretty straightforward and expects you to be able questions about your business proposition, business model, business challenges, how you would spend the money and also how you have been and plan to be performing financially going forward. Now if you can’t answer the above you might want to get thinking about these points anyhow!
After entering the competition, expect hear more about regional heats, finals and short listing procedures - but the reality is that you have until the 31st Jan 2013 to enter and be in the mix.
You can find out all the details via the Lloyds TSB Enterprise Awards website and good luck to all you self starters out there, if you apply for the awards...
Finding the right supplier for your business can seem daunting when those you are looking at are overseas. So here are some things to think about when starting a relationship with and working with an overseas supplier.
