Charity Backs Student Entrepreneur Competition

The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, based at Friars Mill in Leicester city centre, is delighted to announce that it is to sponsor a brand-new competition hosted by Leicester College, which aims to help entrepreneurial students get their business ideas off the ground.

‘Pitch Your Passion’ is a competition open to all full and part-time Level 3 or above students attending the college, providing an opportunity for budding entrepreneurs to showcase their business idea before a panel of judges.

In a deal worth over £20,000 over the next five years, fellow sponsors Pattersons Commercial Law will be donating 10 hours of professional support to the winning businesses, with a first prize of £1,000 being awarded to the winners to fund the start-up.
