Call for entries opens for Venture Out, a student competition

(26 October 2016)

Manchester Enterprise Centre (MEC), part of Alliance Manchester Business School, is looking to support the next big idea from The University of Manchester through Venture Out 2016. 

Venture Out is the University’s signature student ideas competition, and is open to all current undergraduates and postgraduates. 

The competition allows for individuals or groups to win cash prizes to develop their idea into a viable business, as well as support from the MEC on how to spot opportunities and develop business concepts. 

This year there are five categories including business, digital, social, research, and the PZ Cussons Innovation Challenge. 

Dr Martin Henery, Competition Director for Venture Out, said: “The competition attracts such a diverse and imaginative range of entries every year and is a great opportunity for students from any part of The University of Manchester to develop creative solutions to real life problems based on their skills, life experiences or subject specialism. 

“Venture Out is all about finding the problems that you care about and demonstrating that you have an idea as to how to make a difference.” 

All entries must be received before 7 November 2016. 

  • Your students can find out more information or enter on the MEC website.
