Big Ideas Challenge


Enterprize’s Big Ideas Challenge is a pitch contest allowing you to dip your toes into the world of startups and hone your business idea.

Once enrolled, our online learning platform teaches the startup business basics using global best practice tools from ideation through to pitching.

If you’ve got an idea for a startup business, a social enterprise, a community project, or an innovative new use for Smart/Cities/IoT devices then a huge opportunity awaits. The Big Ideas Challenge seeks to unearth the ideas you’ve been dreaming about and it’s completely free!

You can enter one of four categories

  2. Social Impact - This category is for ideas that will have a positive impact on our communities and the world beyond. This could be an environmental, social or other not-for-profit idea that helps those who need it most.
