Battle of the Colleges


Sunday 4th March 2012:  1pm-4.30pm, Barker House Farm (Cartmel)

 What is it? An inter college battle to see which college has the most enterprising students. Each college can submit a team of six students to compete in the Lancaster University Enterprise: Battle of the Colleges event. The teams are given a real world business scenario and have 90 minutes to develop an investment winning pitch to a selection of business minded staff, alumni and local entrepreneurs.

 What can you win? The winning college not only wins the title and trophy for being the most enterprising college but gets the chance to represent Lancaster University at an international inter-university pitching competition (FLUX500). The competition is now in its 7th year and has seen over 30,000 students take part from over 100 universities. The national champions also win £500 cash each!

 What should I expect?  An action packed event to help you increase your knowledge and understanding of enterprise and help you develop those job winning enterprise skills! The event kicks off with a free buffet lunch at 1pm in Barker House Farm and will wrap up at around 4.30pm. Last year many students came dressed to impress!

 OK I’m interested, what next? Register with your college administrator NOW!
