The Big Idea Challenge is one of the UK’s biggest entrepreneurship competitions for college students and is organised in partnership with London Metropolitan University, Microsoft, NatWest, Disrupts, Lucidia, amplify and the Prince’s Trust. This year saw around 500 participants from 10 London colleges competing. The winning teams from each college were invited to an intensive bootcamp day hosted by NatWest where they were each paired with a mentor to develop their idea and learn how to pitch.
