It's the final week to 'Venture Out'

The deadline for entries is 4 November

Venture Out is into the final week and the entries are starting to flow in which some interesting entries so far!


Venture Out is the University of Manchester’s student ideas competition requiring students to state in less than 500 words a problem they have identified, how they plan to solve it (or indeed are solving it), and the benefits their solution provides (is expected to provide).


There are four categories; Business, Social, Digital and Research. So whether you have seen a gap in the market for a new product, wish to address a social imbalance, have some great ideas for applying cool technology, or can see the benefits of a particular piece of research, then there should be something for everybody. Aside from the possibility of winning some great prizes (£500 for the winner in each category), this could be a really important first step to starting your own enterprise or something different to put on your CV.

If you prefer to test yourself against a more specific challenge, then check out the Innovation Challenge that has been set by competition sponsor PZ Cussons. The prizes might be even more tempting with £1500 going to the winning entry.
