Following the success of last year’s competition, budding or growing social entrepreneurs are invited to ‘Take the Next Step’ – all it takes is 500 words to enter.  The winner will walk off with a £10,000 prize package but all entrants will benefit.  

Shortlisted entrants will receive tailored support to develop their business ideas; all entrants will be offered support through workshops and other events throughout the year. 

Have you been thinking about a business idea? Or is it already up and running? Either way, it’s time to do something about it! Full details are here.

Take the Next Step

If your idea has a social or environmental element, take the step…just enter, letting them know about your idea or plan in 500 words and they’ll help you step up.

The winner will receive a £10,000 cash prize and runners up prizes of £1000, both to help develop the enterprise further.

The Best of Richmond are pleased to be one of the partner organisations and have added a year's business membership to the prize pool.
