The Big Idea Challenge returned to Brooklands College on Wednesday.
Sponsored by big multinational companies like NatWest and Microsoft, the Big Idea Challenge is London’s premier entrepreneurship competition hosted by Brooklands College’s Business department and London Met University, with ideas needing to be a new product, social project or creative.
80 students from across the College participated in an idea development and pitching session, facilitated by some of the Business students. A team composed of level 3 Business students, with their idea for a pipe turbine producing renewable energy, will progress through to the next round of the competition. The next round will be a bootcamp at the headquarters of NatWest in Bishopsgate, London.
Each group gave a 60-second pitch to the three esteemed judges, Simon Lovegrove (Assistant Principal), Steve Brice (Governor) and a graduate of the London Metropolitan University’s Guildhall School of Business and Law, Kevin Simpson. The judges faced the tough task of selecting the top three ideas. The runners-up were the Computing team with their modular phone idea whilst another Business team, with their solar-powered clothing concept, finished in third place.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who organised and took part in this successful event.
