You’ll need to have taken part in a British Council Creative Spark activity and already have developed a brilliant idea. For your chance to win amazing prizes, you’ll also need to record a 60 second video pitch, complete an application form and submit it to your university or institution in April or May!

The teams behind the top ideas will be shortlisted for a country final judged by national panels of business experts. The teams from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan will also enter a public vote for the most popular ideas. County finalists will be announced on 1st July.

Following national finals in mid-July,  one team per country will be invited to the UK. These winners will walk away with prizes including free websites, internships and business mentoring to turn their idea into a reality – as well as a share of £25,000 of cash to provide seed funding to get their business off the ground. International winners and runners-up will be anounced at an event in Oxford in early September.
