King’s College Entrepreneurship Prize 2019 is now open!


The 2019 King’s College Entrepreneurship Prize is now open. Supported by the Stuart Lyons Fund for Entrepreneurship, this exciting initiative encourages and helps King’s Members in developing their promising ideas and concepts. Both commercial and social entrepreneurial ideas are acceptable and may be completely new or in a partially developed form.

Following the same format as last year, the 2019 competition will again offer a top prize for the winner of £20,000, a runners-up prize of £10,000 and a third prize of £5,000. First round entrants who provide the best one-page business ideas will each receive £100, 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, following which they will receive £1,000, and of course may in addition be awarded one of the top prizes.

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, both 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 College Entrepreneurship Prize, plus the entry form, can be found at: All enquiries should be emailed to .

The deadline for submissions is 12 noon on 21 January 2019.

All the recent news from King's College, from the latest cutting-edge research to announcements from the Chapel and Choir.
