The bootcamp day was held in the amazing glass offices of Nat West in the City and attended by 21 other colleges from across London. Saul Booth, George Stokes and Arran Weeresekere, all from IT, were assigned to work with a business mentor (Gary Belton, the Regional Head of Business Development for Nat West) and a current undergraduate from London Met University.
They spent the day developing their start-up business idea for a trackable golf ball and app by preparing a business proposition, identifying their target market and quantifying the opportunity for their product. The final stage was a 60 second ‘elevator’ pitch which the students enthusiastically delivered to a large audience of students and staff from the competing colleges.
The next stage is a professional filming session of their ‘Golf Angel’ pitch in a couple of weeks’ time which will be placed on the internet for online voting and we will be asking for your support to get through to the next round of the Big Idea Challenge.The whole event will culminate in a grand awards evening at The Guildhall in London with guest speakers and the event sponsors such as HRH The Duke of York.
