College entrepreneurship competition is now open!

This year’s competition for King’s entrepreneurs is now open! The exciting initiative, which is supported by the Stuart Lyons Fund for Entrepreneurship, encourages and supports King’s Members in the development of their promising ideas and concepts. Such ideas may be of a commercial or a social entrepreneurship nature, can be completely new or in a partially developed form!

Due to the success of last year’s scheme, in 2018 there will be a top prize for the winner of £20,000, a runner-up prize of £10,000 and a third prize of £5,000! In the first round, entrants who provide the best one-page business ideas will each receive up to £1,000, to enable them to submit supplementary information for further consideration. Finalists will then be selected and invited to prepare a full business plan to present in College.

A group of alumni and Fellows have been chosen to act as competition judges and, possibly, mentors to winning entrants.

This is an annual prize, open to all King’s Members – students and alumni! Entrants may be individual or a team, we just ask that the team leader of any group is a King’s Member.

Further information about the King’s Entrepreneurship Prize, plus the entry form, can be found at: All enquiries should be emailed to .

The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on 21st February 2018.
