This year students will get the chance to visit London's Google Campus space, Creative Entrepreneurs, Barclays and many more exciting spaces...

The events of the day will be streamed live on London Live and various news channels. You will also get a chance to network and meet business leaders and the people creating new jobs and coming up with creative ways to meet society’s challenges. We aim to introduce students to entrepreneurship and a range of entrepreneurial journeys, provide a platform for knowledge exchange, foster collaboration and networking and instil entrepreneurial attributes through peer to peer interaction and experiential learning.

Selection of the participants will solely be based on the videos uploaded, you are not expected to spend a lot of time producing the video or have to consider yourself an entrepreneur, own or run a business; we are looking for creativity, originality and a sincere interest or curiosity for enterprise and entrepreneurship!
