Applications for the 2018 Launchpad Competition are now open.

Submission deadline: 10 September 2018
Pitch final: 22 November 2018


Each year we help one budding engineering entrepreneur aged 18-25 to start a business based on their engineering innovation.

Over our 12 month programme we focus on equipping the awardee with the confidence, skills, experience and network of expert advisors necessary to enable them to develop their innovation. The most successful awardees will then serve as role models to inspire the next generation of aspiring entrepreneurs, passing on the skills they have gained.

The Launchpad Competition is generously supported by the Gammon family, and the winner will received:

  • The JC Gammon Award
  • £15,000 equity-free seed funding
  • Lifetime membership of the Enterprise Hub
