Through spearheading the event, we are funding current Graduate Business School Griffith College student-led companies a total of €15,000 using our EU-funding.

The prize is divided in three: 

€7,000 is awarded to the winning entry, 

€5,000 is awarded to second place

How it works

  • Students will be asked to pitch their business ideas including 1–2-year projections & SWOT analysis.
  • Student submissions will be in the form of a 5-minute video outlining all required information about their business pitch to [email protected]
  • The closing date for entries has been extended until the 8th of September 2023.
  • From all submissions, a shortlist of entries will be produced. From this shortlist, participating teams will then move on to the interview stage towards the end of July/start of August.
  • The top 6 successful entries after the interview stage will be joining the bootcamp, where they will have access to mentoring to help them create a compelling final presentation. Throughout the process, they will receive advice, support, and guidance from handpicked experts, keynote speakers, and the GBS Research and Innovation Hub team themselves.
  • The top three ideas will participate in a 10min pitch + Q&A in the final event on October 10th, 2023. The winners will be decided and announced using a PR campaign.
  • These winners will then be supported by GBS R&I Hub into 2024.
