THE entrepreneurs of the future are being asked to enter a competition to turn their bright ideas into reality.

Highbury College students will be competing with young entrepreneurs around the country to win a £3,000 investment.

The Edge Foundation has teamed up with the Gazelle Colleges Group, of which Highbury is a member, to launch the first Edge Challenge.

Students will need to set out their innovative and viable business ideas in their application to enter and short-listed candidates will be asked to present their plans to a panel of experts in London.

The top three students will then have the opportunity to showcase their ideas at The Skills Show, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from November 14 to 16.

Eligible students can register online now at and have until midnight on September 20.
