Showcase Your Start Up At Freshers’ Fest

Do you consider yourself a student with ambition? Are you motivated, skilled and creative? Then put that business passion to good use and get entering our competition designed specifically for Scotland’s most talented start ups! We’ve got the den – but don’t worry, no dragons.

In the run up to #FF15 we’ll be asking you to get in touch with a short video or one-pager on why your start up rocks. Judged by a panel of business experts, a selection of the very best entries received will then be awarded with their very own promotional pod to set up camp at Freshers’ Festival, giving you and your company the opportunity to meet business and support networks, explore the market and promote your ideas. We’ll be keen to support your business proposals as aspirational young entrepreneurs.

Take undergraduate Ola Clark for example. Currently studying her Honours in International Business and Enterprise at the University of Strathclyde, Ola has managed to set her up own company, Monomise Ltd, win Global Start Up Summit and be jetted off to San Francisco to Silicon Valley, design a marketing campaign for Strathclyde Entrepreneurial Network, complete a six month study in Australia AND she’s a trainee RAF Jet Pilot! Phew, we’re knackered just thinking about it.


So if you consider yourself equally as passionate and determined then we want to hear from you! If you’re selected to attend this year’s festival, you’ll have the invaluable chance to open the doors to countless new opportunities:

  • Receive your own Promotional Pod at Freshers’ Festival 2015 to showcase your company.
  • Have access to over 8,000 students from 23rd-24th September at Glasgow’s SECC.
  • Make new connections with Scotland’s business experts, support networks and beyond.
  • Get the chance to showcase your passion and vision for your start-up.
  • Not to mention – bag loads of free food, drinks and beyond as part of the festival giveaways!


Open to all Scottish start-up entrepreneurs under the age of 30, for your chance to showcase your business to thousands, send us a either a one minute video or one-page document of no more than 100 words, telling us about your business and why YOU deserve to showcase it at Scotland’s biggest student event. Final deadline for entries is Monday, 31st August.

Good luck – see you at the top (promise you’ll give us a job?)!
