Unloc, a social enterprise working with schools and colleges to inspire, motivate and develop entrepreneurship in young people, has for a second year joined forces with global communications & technology leader, Verizon, to launch a competition for young entrepreneurs across Europe – the Unloc Enterprise Challenge.
The Challenge invites budding entrepreneurs aged 16-25 in mainland European countries to submit their technology-led start-up business concept online. Ideas will be judged by a panel of Verizon senior leaders based on the viability of the idea, its sustainability and technological innovation. The winning entrepreneur will receive £10,000 of funding, plus a mentorship package to help get their business off the ground. The competition formally opened for applications on 1st August 2019 and closes on 15th November 2019.
