At BSBI, we hold a number of competitions to showcase our students skills and innovative thinking. On this page, you will find information on our competitions, be able to explore past winners, as well as find out how you can enter our competitions in the future.

Start-up Competition

BSBI organises an annual start-up competition for students to showcase their innovative business ideas. Not only is this an excellent opportunity for students to challenge themselves by developing a start-up idea, but the competition also enables them to gain experience for their CV and be involved in a business environment. There’s even the chance to win €1,000 as prize money to help students get their business off the ground!
