Kingston University Bright Ideas 2019
TheNonExec MD, Justin Levine, was at Kingston University London yesterday for the 2019 Bright Ideas Grand Final. The event is part of Kingston University’s Enterprise programme designed to unlock the enterprising talents of its students.
This year a record number, (over 700!), of Kingston University students put forward their bright ideas to be judged, the categories were:
- Engineering 1
- Engineering 2
- Online tech
- Science, health and wellbeing services
- Social enterprise
- Virtual panel
Eight panels judged the bright ideas. A winner and runner-up from each category was chosen and 15 promising finalists will be invited to take their ideas through the Bright Ideas Accelerator programme. These students will attend a residential Bootcamp in late spring to learn how to drive their ideas from concept to implementation. They will then join “The Nest”, Kingston’s own incubator, for the summer and will compete for investment at The Bright Ideas Accelerator final this September.
Justin commented “‘I am delighted to have been invited to be a judge at the Kingston University Bright Ideas competition! As a Kingston University alumni myself I welcome every opportunity to help the next generation. Competition was fierce with over 700 ideas and some great finalists!! Congratulations to all who took part.”
