Manchester Enterprise Center Venture Further
May 04, 2020
Venture Further is a business start-up competition, not a business plan competition. You do not need to have entered Venture Out to be able to enter Venture Further. We are looking for proposals for new business ideas that have the greatest potential to succeed, not for the best-formatted business plan. This means that a credible implementation plan is as important as evidencing and validating a real opportunity. Entries should also demonstrate a real intent and desire to take the business forward.
Venture Further has five categories to enter - Business, Creative, Environmental, Social and Technology.
The Venture Further competition takes place in two stages - the First round and the Final round. Up to four entries per category will be selected to proceed to the final round. Following presentations to a final round judging panel, the winners of the first (£12,000) and second (£3,000) prizes in each category will be decided. First and second place for each of the 5 categories will be announced at the Venture Further Awards ceremony, which will take place on Monday, 4 th May 2020 at The Whitworth Hall.
