London, United Kingdom, February 24, 2010 --(PR.com)-- NACUE Proudly Presents UK’s Premier University Start-up Competition

NACUE is launching the premier national pitching competitions for students.

The NACUE National Varsity Pitch Competition seeks to celebrate student enterprise, by showcasing the brightest young minds and the exceptional start-ups coming out of universities today. The deadline for applications is 1st March 2010, and the finalists will be announced 1st April 2010.

Run by National Consortium of University Entrepreneurs in partnership with the British Library, TATA, Microsoft, NCGE and UnLtd, Lloyds Bank, the University of Hertfordshire and Warwick University, the competition is open to all current UK students and recent graduates who have recently started up or plan to start up their own venture, who have a strong business idea. Finalists will go head to head at the Grand Final on 5th May 2010 at the British Library. They will be pitching to a panel of esteemed judges including original BBC2 Dragon, Doug Richard, Julie Meyer, Online Dragon and CEO of Adriane Capital and Richard Tyler of the Daily Telegraph, as well as a VIP audience of over 250 entrepreneurs, investors, innovators, public figures and members of the national media. Contestants will compete for the Industry awards, National Title, golden ticket to the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, Seed Funding and other prizes to launch their ventures from a national platform.

Victoria Lennox, CEO of NACUE says: ‪"Celebrating successes is paramount to generating an entrepreneurial culture. The NVPC celebrates the enterprises of students across all industries and positions them as role models for future generations."

Julie Meyer, CEO of Adriane Capital says: “It’s important to have this kind of competition where people learn the process of pitching and going back for more.”

Doug Richard, founder of School for Startups says: “Opportunities like this come along quite rarely in life, and you regret if you don’t take them. Starting entrepreneurs find it hard to know the value of their business, and the only way for them to really find out is to stand up and pitch in front of an audience that will potentially invest, and see what they say.”
