Young Foundation is scouting for people with big ideas to tackle health problems in Birmingham. If you think you’ve got what it takes, here is your chance to put your hat in the ring and answer four questions:
1. Tell them about the health problem you hope to fix
2. Outline how your idea is big, bold and new
3. What support do you need to get your idea off to a flying start?
4. Who is involved in submitting the idea?
The ten most promising proposals will be invited to attend a ‘Big Idea Bonanza Festival’ on 1st July 2011. The festival will challenge teams to strengthen or create a business in a day, tap into specialist expertise and pitch to a panel of dragons for the chance to win up to £2,000 of start-up funding and bespoke business support.
To apply you must be a public sector employee, third sector organisation or resident of Birmingham or Solihull. They welcome applications from individuals, teams or established organisations looking to launch a new idea or grow an existing service. Closing date is Friday 17th June 2011.
