How it worked

  1. Complete the application form on this page
  2. We select a shortlist of the 5 best applications
  3. Enterprise Nation members vote for their favourites

The applications with the most votes at the end of each month will receive up to £500 to spend on their business idea (we’ve got £1000 to pay out each month). You don’t have to pay it back – all we ask is for you to agree to share your story on the Enterprise Nation blog!



Competition has now ended completely, so we’ll be accepting no more applications.
