Competition rules


Capturing the spirit of Churchill’s intent to produce the leaders of the future, this competition seeks to identify the best business ideas of current Churchill students and alumni.

The aim of this competition is to create an environment where Churchill students and alumni can gain knowledge and skills in whatever future direction their careers take: corporate, banking, consulting or entrepreneurship.

The competition is open to all current members of College, including alumni, with an idea for an innovative service or product they would like to develop. Prizes include mentoring and cash prizes to enable participants to develop their ideas further.

Prospective entrants are invited to contact development@chu.cam.ac.uk if they have any questions and / or to seek advice on potential submissions. The submission deadline is Sunday 6 March 2022. The finals will take place on Wednesday 27 April 2022.

“The Churchill Enterprise Competition was a wonderful opportunity to develop our business pitching skills. Typically, early stage business ideas are always rough around the edges and require refining – to sharpen the idea, you need to pitch it to someone experienced to give you feedback.”
