Students can win £2,000, a new iPad, and free accounting/business guidance for a year!

We’re running a competition for students who have the best business idea. All you have to do is submit your idea to us with a short business plan including some basic financials. The winner will get £2,000, a new iPad, and free accounting/business guidance for a year!

Submit your business idea!

At Archimedia Accounts we have always seen ourselves as a career mentor to young Uni students looking for guidance through a seemingly complex finance industry. 

But this is our way to give back to all types of uni students, it’s not just for business or finance students, the playing field is open!

Entrepreneurship in the UK is thriving, and young people are showing fantastic creativity and entrepreneurial skill (from youtube/instagram influencers, to rapid growing boutique burger chains). 

More than 800,000 businesses are setup in the UK every year and we want to encourage this.

Have you always had a great idea but never known how or had the courage to start it? Well put it to the test! You’ve got nothing to lose!

Send us your business idea, explain why it’s a great idea, explain why it will do well, and how the financials work (think Dragon’s Den!). The winner takes the prize.

Our team of Accountants will vet your idea.

As a bonus, if your idea is exceptional, you’ll not only get the prize, but we’ll also personally guide your talent into the future, whether that means mentoring you through employment, or setting the business up after university.

Deadline: 31/03/2024
