£25,000 Commercialising Research Competition
Do you think your research has commercial potential but you're not sure what to do next?
Entrepreneurs with ideas at all stages of development are invited to participate in this high profile national competition by submitting a one-page outline of a business idea by 14 September 2007.
The competition is designed to help entrepreneurial researchers from across the UK find successful routes to market. Previous ompetitions have successfully helped to establish several new spin out companies.
Applicants accepted for the competition will receive training through a two day commercialisation workshop. Those suceeding to the second phase will have access to highly skilled experts with experience of research commercialisation who will guide in the preparation of a high quality business plan, the essential requirement for marketing a business idea to potential investors.
Prizes of up to £25,000 will be awarded to the business plans judged to have the best potential to help turn business ideas into reality.
