We are today launching a brand new competition, the Enterprise Nation Student Start-up of the Year, with a £3,500 cash prize up for grabs.

Supported by top technology enablers Microsoft and 123 Reg as part of our Go and Grow Online campaign, we're looking for brilliant business ideas from students currently studying in the UK or those who have graduated in the past two years.

Entries can be an idea for a business not yet trading or an existing business that has been trading for less than a year.

Applications need to be submitted here by 12 May and a shortlist of 10 applicants will be invited to pitch in front of a panel of expert judges at Microsoft's offices in London on 19 May.

From those pitching, five will be selected and videos of their elevator pitch will be published on Enterprise Nation for a public vote.

The business that receives the most votes will be declared the winner and announced in front of an audience of more than 100 business owners at the Go and Go Grow Online Summit in London on 26 May.
