The SJL Foundation has relaunched this nationwide competition to substantially help a new batch of entrepreneurs wishing to establish their own business.
Participants will pitch to a panel and audience at the House of Commons later this year, outlining why they should win funding.
Winners will be awarded a start-up business grant of £2,000. They will also receive mentoring and associated PR to boost their profiles.
Businesspeople in the UK with a business start-up idea or with a start-up business up to one year old may enter.
Simon Lancaster, Trustee of the SJL Foundation, said:
"After the success of last year’s awards, I am excited about what the SJL National Start-Up Business Awards can achieve for next generation entrepreneurs in 2020.
"I established SJL Insurance 18 years ago with a Worcester council grant of £500, which I used to buy a desk and computer, so I want the story to go full circle and help others do the same with our PayItForward movement."
The closing date for entries is Monday 2 March 2020.
2020 deadline: 2 March 2020.
To enter the competition, entrants need to email [email protected] to ask for an application form.
Each competition entrant must submit a three minute video of themselves saying what their business activity does, and how they would spend the £2,000 grant and how they would benefit from mentorship.
