The Mayor's Entrepreneur

We are excited to announce that we have expanded the Mayor's Entrepreneur competition to not one, not two, but three prizes of £20,000 each!

The two new awards will be focussed on the Tech and Creative Industries sectors.

Ideas will only be allowed to be entered under one award.  Business ideas for each sector will be judged separately (i.e. Environment, Tech and Creative Industries).

Finally this year there will also be a semi-final round to get the top 90 down to the final 15 who will pitch to the panel of celebrity judges.

The competition is not open yet but register your interest to get future alerts.

The Mayor's Entrepreneur competition is supported by Citi Foundation.


This year we are offering 25 paid, part-time 6 month internships to students who are currently studying at a university in London.

Find out what last year's interns found most rewarding and what they think others can get out of it here.

Applications close at midnight on 15 August so have a look at the link now so you don't miss out.
