You should provide evidence that you have a genuine and credible business idea which meets the criteria of being innovative, and that you will spend the majority of your time working on the development of your business.
The application process is in two stages.
Email the following documents to the beepurple team:
The beepurple team will review all entries and offer feedback on how to improve your application (if needed).
You will make final amendments to your application paperwork based on this feedback, before resubmitting it to the beepurple team.
The Business Development Manager (Entrepreneurship) will then decide whether your application can proceed to Stage Two.
- You will be invited to deliver a 10-minute pitch, presenting your Business Model Canvas.
- If you are outside of the UK at the time of application, you will need to deliver a video pitch via Zoom.
- Your pitch will be followed by 10-minute question and answer session, facilitated by the beepurple team.
The beepurple team will score each pitch, along with each Business Model Canvas and application form, and the applicants with a score of 27 or higher will be offered an endorsement letter from the University of Brighton.
The beepurple team will provide a copy of the judging criteria and pitch scoring sheets to all applicants at the beginning of Stage Two.
