co-working competition

Calling all graduate entrepreneurs! Enter for your chance to win one year’s free membership to The Projects – Brighton’s newest co-working space!

The University of Brighton is very excited to be partnering with The Projects – a new co-working space which will house a unique community of formidable creatives, ambitious tech entrepreneurs and enterprising startups. The Projects will offer seven serviced offices, along with three floors of communal co-working space. Complete with a bar, café, library, gym and roof terrace, The Projects will be unlike anything else currently available in the local area. It will offer a ‘private members club’ feel, where the community of approximately 200 members benefit from the many incredible features which will be on offer.

The Project is generously offering one year’s free membership and mentoring support worth £2000 to one of our graduate entrepreneurs!

Application Process

To enter the competition, simply answer the three questions in the entry form and send to the Enterprise team at beepurple@brighton.ac.uk.

After the pitches, The Projects team will choose the winner of the co-working space competition.

The pitches are scheduled to take place on Thursday, 13 December 2018.
