Pitch It competition could see you win £15,000

If you have a business idea or a company of your own, then you could represent the University at the national Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards and be in with the chance of winning up to £15,000.

To choose our national representatives, we will be holding a Pitch It competition on Wednesday 23 March, offering a £25 prize for those chosen to pitch on the day and a £250 prize for the day’s overall best pitch. An hour’s free mentoring will also be given to all those chosen to compete.

You can submit as many pitches as you like before Friday 18 March here and the top 10 best pitches will be chosen to participate in the competition. Remember, if you reach this stage you are guaranteed a £25 win, no matter what!

The competition will take place from 12.30pm – 2.30pm, and your pitch will need to be just three minutes long. If you’d like to get some preparation in beforehand, you can book onto our optional How to Pitch workshop on Monday 21 March and get some advice from our expert Enterprise team.

You can enter as an individual or as a team, together with your peers. If you have any questions, please contact the Enterprise team at or by phone on 0161 295 5088.
