More young people than ever are considering self-employment over employment. Why? Because it's now perfectly possible to start and grow a successful business! The competition is powered by Enterprise Trust and provides young people and recent graduates with the opportunity to win a host of business prizes and £2,500 cash investment.
Students and recent graduates from 200 colleges and universities across Britain entered this year's competition. We shortlisted 10 finalists who pitched to a panel of expert judges in London. The judges have now chosen the final five businesses who face a public vote. Watch the video pitches below and vote for your favourite.
In 2017, students and graduates at more than 50 educational institutions from across Britain entered Enterprise Nation's Student Start-up of the Year competition.
From the entries, 10 were shortlisted to pitch at Microsoft HQ in London. After an afternoon of impressive presentations, our expert judges shortlisted five to win the top prize. After a public vote, we declared ThinAir the winner!
