Entrepreneurship Awards

Santander is committed to encouraging and promoting enterprise at all stages of the business cycle.  One area that needs more support tis marketing brilliant ideas, which in a good deal of cases are born in the classrooms of many UK Campuses.  Enterprising undergraduates and graduates in the UK are invited to enter Santander Universities Entrepreneurship awards, which offer a top prize to the best idea presented to an expert panel of judges. Previous winners have already launched their ventures into the market with great success.

The awards aim to support and encourage university students to pursue their business ideas and are open to students from all participating UK universities currently partnering with Santander Universities.

Several projects at the University of St Andrews are supported by this funding, the main one being the annual Idea Explosion Competition.  The completion is now closed for 2014, but further details can be found at:
