Business Ideas Competition | LAUNCH.ed

This competition is now closed

The LAUNCH.ed Business Ideas Competition rewards promising potential businesses and social enterprises from students and recent graduates (2 years) of the University of Edinburgh. The ideas do not need to be fully developed, and entrants are not required to have a complete strategy to put the idea into practice.

If you have an early-stage business or social enterprise idea, this is a fantastic opportunity to find out if your idea has commercial viability and to discover how you can make it a reality.


We ask you a few questions about your idea then we ask you to submit a simple one-minute video pitch about the idea! Email the video to: and if you mark it private remember to include the password! Find out more on eligibility and entry criteria here.


The judges will choose the top ideas as our finalists who will then need to pitch their idea at a closed pitching session. Prizes will be awarded at the Holly Jolly networking event hosted by the eClub. The winner will receive £200 in Amazon vouchers with prizes will be given to two runners-up.

Deadline: Sunday 19th November at midnight. 

Good Luck to those who entered! 

The winners will be announced at the annual Holly Jolly speed-networking event
