The prizes on offer are :-


  • business planning advice and mentoring from Kingston Smith

  • mobile communications devices and plans from Orange

  • marketing consultancy from Publicis Chemistry

  • legal advice from Lewis Silkin

  • investment capital

All that adds up to £200,000 and covers off a years worth of support, which can get pretty well any business off the ground.

Orange have been in operation since 1994 (when the main 2 players were Vodafone and Cellnet and nobody thought that a company named after a fruit/colour would do so well) and they've always made their mark by being different.

The competition, to UK individuals (over 18) and companies, is a great way to get noticed and for people who just have got good ideas to turn them into a reality.

There are various incubators in the UK now and winning this competition is like getting into a private incubator for a whole year. Even existing businesses will gain from entering.
