What's happening when


12 January - 22 February

Entry period - we are asking SMEs with ideas that could change lives to complete the application form and send us a short video.

3 March

The video review panel will meet to sift through the entries and identify the priority list.

19 March

Shortlist announced (we'll contact the SMEs on the shortlist during the week of 16th March).

26 March

We are inviting the short-listed SMEs to pitch their ideas to the judging panel in the Auditorium at the the BT Tower. We'd like you to make a short presentation and take questions from the judges.

This will be an afternoon event, and after the pitch session while the judges deliberate, we'd like you to join us for drinks and nibbles on the 34th Floor of the BT Tower.

We'll announce the winner and runners-up around 8pm.

After 26 March

BT will be working with the winning SME to develop their idea. The winner will take up their space at TechHub for 6 months. And they will have £15,000 to spend on growing the business.

The two runners-up will each have £7,500 to spend on growing their businesses.
