Downing Enterprise

Downing Enterprise is an annual competition for all students and alumni of Downing College who wish to submit the outline of a business idea. Prizes of up to £1000 are offered for the best one-page business descriptions. Teams submitting these may be invited to prepare a full business plan, which will be considered for an investment of up to £25,000.

The competition is funded by a group currently of 10 alumni who also act as competition judges and mentors to the winning teams. The leader of each team must be a Downing College student or alumnus.
