SJL National Start-up Business Awards 2020

This programme aims to help prospective entrepreneurs in the UK to set up in business.

The SJL Foundation has relaunched this nationwide competition to substantially help a new batch of entrepreneurs wishing to establish their own business.

Participants will pitch to a panel and audience at the House of Commons later this year, outlining why they should win funding.

Winners will be awarded a start-up business grant of £2,000. They will also receive mentoring and associated PR to boost their profiles.

Businesspeople in the UK with a business start-up idea or with a start-up business up to one year old may enter.

Simon Lancaster, Trustee of the SJL Foundation, said:

“After the success of last year’s awards, I am excited about what the SJL National Start-Up Business Awards can achieve for next generation entrepreneurs in 2020.

“I established SJL Insurance 18 years ago with a Worcester council grant of £500, which I used to buy a desk and computer, so I want the story to go full circle and help others do the same with our PayItForward movement.”

The closing date for entries is Monday 2 March 2020.
