Young innovators are being offered prize money of up to £50,000 for business ideas.
Students and apprentices are eligible for the challenge to create a successful plan. Winners will receive cash to help bring their idea to life, plus a year’s dedicated business support.
A total of £300,000 is up for grabs in the Young Innovators Challenge launched yesterday by First Minister Alex Salmond and youth employment minister Angela Constance. The competition is open to people aged 18-24 who are in their final year of college or university, or in a national training or modern apprenticeship programme.
