Do you students have a great business idea and want the opportunity to have professional mentoring and funding to develop it?
The Side Hustle Initiative is a nationwide search for all 14-18-year-olds who either are already delivering a side hustle or who have an amazing business idea that they are passionate about launching.
They are providing an opportunity for the top 25 individuals to gain access to one-to-one professional mentoring to support them in evolving their ideas. The top 5 finalists will share a £10,000 investment fund to go straight into growing their business.
Entry for The Side Hustle Initiative is now open until next Friday 9th July!
How does it work?
- Students can enter now before Friday 9th July. They must fill in a short form outlining their current side hustle or new business idea.
- Once the entry period has closed on 9th July, students will need to campaign for votes (13th-25th July) to secure a place in the top 20, which will give them an opportunity to pitch their business idea to our judges. An additional 5 entries will be selected as wildcards and have an opportunity to pitch their idea to our judges too.
- The top 25 finalists will be invited to attend a ‘Dragons Den’ style pitch in front of our judges in a Central London location (dependent on COVID restrictions).
Entrants may include:
Revenue-creating businesses, making positive social change, arts and culture, or exciting new ideas.
ENTRY IS NOW OPEN and closes on Friday 9th July.
