The If We Can You Can Challenge is the North Easts only startup business competition open to all sectors. The competition is built on the ethos that everything starts with a conversation. The aim of the Challenge is to connect startups to members of the business community in order to help them develop, grow and most importantly, be celebrated!
The North East has the lowest amount of businesses (657) per 10,000 people in the UK. For this to change we must unite to support, encourage & celebrate enterprising people across the region to startup and build successful businesses. Startups need positive role models that will inspire confidence to give them the motivation to turn their dreams into reality…
The Ideas Prize Award is where we support and progress inspirational ideas from potential entrepreneurs. Anyone from North East England can enter this category if they have a business idea but are not yet established or trading.
This award is combined with workshops and is supported by Challenge stakeholders in a unique event that will ensure you begin to build your industry contacts and give applicants the chance to win some amazing prizes.
The shortlisted finalists will be invited to pitch their idea in 2 minutes and the audience will then vote for their winner, live! This will be daunting but sharing ideas, showcasing their passion and increasing their skills are all the experiences we want to provide them on the road to self-employment.
This unique pitching competition is open to all North East Expo guests and Chamber of commerce members. So if you are interested in the next stage of Entrepreneurs, come along and here from the talent we look forward to seeing you!
