The winning student or team will also receive a working space on the Hub for Innovation and Enterprise Start-Up Scheme, all services/rents paid for one year, as well as a business mentor from Santander Bank.

Students can submit entries individually or work in teams. More than one entry can be submitted by a team or individual.
