      If We Can You Can Challenge - Grand Final

      The If We Can You Can Challenge is organised by FIRST, a network of services committed to connecting startups, professionals and young people to their wider business community. Prior to this, the Entrepreneurs’ Forum were the organisers and in 2014 asked FIRST to run the competition under license. Since the takeover, If We Can You Can has been supported by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership, all 5 regional Universities, and enterprise agencies throughout the North East region. This year being our biggest collection of events yet; engaging with more startups than ever, offering them invaluable support and long-lasting connections in the competition's 11th year. The If We Can You Can Challenge is an influential brand in the North East business community and over the past 5 years, FIRST have built on this by identifying aspirational and successful startups.  There are currently four award categories in total and 2 of these will be awarded at this event ; 1) Biggest Social Impact Award  2) Highest Growth Potential Award We are proud that the Challenge uncovers great North East companies and work hard to include all regional business networks. We have a fantastic list of partners to work with in order to help us identify a clutch of hidden but scalable businesses in the region and showcase what support is available for them.  The evening will allow you, members of the business community tovote for their winners and these two startups will be presented with the Highest Growth Potential Award sponsored by the Entrepreneurs Forum and the Biggest Social Impact Award sponsored by PNE Enterprise.  This ticket for this black tie Grand Final includes a welcome drink, exclusive entertainment and a 3 course meal including further refreshments.   For more information on how the competition works or how to get involved, visit our website: www.ifwecanyoucan.co.uk.  See video from last years Grand Final here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn4-QXOZMOM Alternatively, if you are a startup less than 3 years old and want to apply for the Grand Final, apply on our website via www.ifwecanyoucan.co.uk/apply before the 31st of September and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur with a great business idea, enter the Ideas Prize catagory before the 31st of October.
