What is the 85k challenge?


#2

The 85k Challenge is an entrepreneurship competition run by the entrepreneurship club at the uni. Firstly you need to submit an idea, once you’ve done that theres a speed mentoring workshop that helps you refine it. You then need to present to the panel of 5 judges, (don’t worry this isn’t a pitch!) The entrants are narrowed down to 10 and you’re given 4 months to work with a mentor to help develop your idea. The final stage is making a business plan and a 10 minute pitch to a panel of 5 judges. The prizes are chosen out of a pool of 85k so they’re really generous.
