Launch of Tata Idea Idol 2012
Tata Idea Idol 2012, the flagship competition of the Oxford Entrepreneurs
society, was launched on 1st December by Will Chadwick of Tata Interactive
at Said Business School.
Students at the launch event also heard from Stuart Miller, CEO
and co-founder of ByBox, and Benjamin Barokas, current president
and co-founder of AdMeld.
Tata Idea Idol is a competition designed to give students the opportunity
to showcase and test their innovative business ideas. Students will
now submit their ideas to the Oxford Entrepreneurs society, and
six of these will be selected for a live competition which will
take place in spring 2012.
At the live competition, a representative from each finalist business
will deliver a two-minute "elevator pitch" to convince
a panel of four judges to choose their business plan as the most
likely to succeed. Up to £10,000 in prize money is awarded
