CUE £5k Challenge Part 1

For an entrants’ checklist, please look here

This is it. CU Entrepreneurs is now in the final phase of its competition. We will be awarding prizes of £5000 to businesses in the categories Technology & CleanTech, Social & Environmental, and Software & Web. This is the opportunity in Cambridge to gain recognition and establish your venture as the one to watch!

As with the £1k challenge, prior entry is not required, although each team must have at least one member of the University. Read the Competitions Handbook for more information. To help you write the best possible entry, the Resources page has guides and slides from our training events and workshops.

In Part 1 of the £5k Challenge, submit an extended summary, which will be reviewed by our panels of judges. If the judges like what they see, your team will be invited to participate as competition finalists, submitting a full business plan in Phase 2. As with the £1k challenge, entries are judged in 3 streams—which have slightly differing entry requirements:

Technology Ideas (including CleanTech). Technology-based businesses with a high potential for profit and growth. Entrants are to submit a 3500 word extended summary.

Social Enterprise Ideas (including Environmentally Sustainable ventures). Socially and/or environmentally conscious organisations with a scalable potential for impact. Can be either for profit or not-for-profit. Entrants are to submit a 3500 word extended summary.

Software Ideas (including Web and Mobile). All ventures with a software based development model. Entrants are to submit a 2000 word extended summary, and a deck of powerpoint slides presenting their business.

For the judging criteria applied to each stream, please refer to the Competitions Handbook. We strongly recommend you read it fully to ensure that you understand the competition rules.

Good luck with your entry!
