Business Start Ups Competition


Marketest has developed a strong desire to encourage entrepreneurship throughout the UK, by supporting enterprise in universities and running their very own Business Start-Up Competition, which gives pre-startups and startups the opportunity to take their business ideas to the next level.

The Business Start-Up Competition aims to support individuals over the age of 18 who have the ability to come up with a new business or social enterprise idea that has real market potential. The participants who enter the competition will be required to produce a concise business analysis on their idea (e.g. development of the idea, USP, competitors, SWOT etc). A fully feasible business plan is not expected, just a general overview of the idea to indicate future success. Participants can easily enter by downloading the application form.

Marketest is offering all participants significant market research discounts and awarding the winner and runner up with £1000 and £500 Tailored Market Research. The valuable market research prize will help transform a vision into a venture in a fun and creative way.
