Big Ideas Challenge

Be an Entrepreneur for 4 days!

The Big Ideas Challenge 2 is an enterprise and employability challenge organised by UCLan Student Enterprise & Incubation Team and Careers Service.

The challenge will involve working in teams on a real, live challenge across 4 days in conjunction with a real organisation. You will be expected to come up with a ‘Big Idea,’ prove the business case for it and then pitch it to an expert panel of judges. The team with the best pitch will win the prizes and a placement opportunity.

The challenge is based on the principle of ‘learning by doing’ and at the end of the challenge, you should be able to do more than you could before, having stretched your ability to tackle and respond to real life problems such as those within a real work or business environment.

When? 15-18th May 2017

Where? UCLan Media Factory
