At Born, we’re always looking to help get the next big ideas off the ground. The UK has always been a great place to start a new business but the current lack of bank lending is now its biggest growth barrier. Our crowdfunding platform aims to bridge that gap so that independent design and creative entrepreneurs can get funding from our network of design-savvy backers. We’ve helped Katherine and Tom Homfray bring their smart night lights for children to life and artist Nina Fowler create a catalogue of her life’s work.
We’re big believers in creativity and entrepreneurship, that’s why we’ve teamed up with the Independent to find the next big innovation. Running a nationwide competition, we will give the winner the chance to give birth to their idea with a PR budget fund of up to £15,000.
This competition is open to entrepreneurs, startups, SMEs and individuals looking to take their idea, product, or service to market. To further spur awareness and funding, entrants can gain financial support of their idea on born.com.
The winner will be announced on 31st May 2015 and will work closely with the Born team to build their project and implement their PR plan. Along with the prize, the winner will receive mentoring from Born’s expert panel around their ‘next big innovation’ idea.
