Fresh Ideas Enterprise Competition

Fresh Ideas is Scotland’s longest running national student enterprise competition for ideas at an early stage. The competition is designed exclusively for students and recent graduates of all subjects.

Your ideas do not need to be well developed and you will not be expected to have a strategy to put the idea into practice.
