Closing date: August 31st


The winner will have a business idea which is CREATIVE, SUSTAINABLE and ACHIEVABLE. Our definitions are

CREATIVE - we have very broad parameters for this one. It doesn't need to be "arty", although it can be. Creative could mean innovative, in other words it could be a new type of product or a service delivered in a new way. 

SUSTAINABLE - nothing fossil fuel based please! Can you see your business thriving into the future with little or no damage to people and the environment? 

ACHIEVABLE - sounds boring but really means that "New translation service for Martians" won't be a winner. Aiming high is ok though! 

The Egg Factory is a friendly accessible creative co-working space with a great community vibe. Members work productively in an informal environment and get lots done but there's always a sympathetic ear, a cuppa and a laugh. See our website for more details
