The University of Bristol's annual New Enterprise Competition has been launched. The competition is designed to inspire new high growth business ideas and entrepreneurial talent and is open to students, staff and recent graduates of the university.
The Computer Science department typically puts on a strong showing at the competition, with a string of finalists and prize winners in previous years, including last year's winner, SensaGest, which recently went on to win the Winners of Winners competition.
There is a substantial prize fund in the region of £30,000 including cash, free professional advice and managed office space to help make businesses a commercial success. The closing date for entry for the 2007 competition is 26 February 2007. Please see the Research and Enterprise Development page for more details.
