2020 Santander Universities Emerging Entrepreneurs Online National Final
2020 marks the 10th year of the Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards, and to celebrate, we’ve been running the Santander Universities Emerging Entrepreneurs Programme. The programme launched in May, and since then 81 businesses from our network of 85 partner universities have been put through their paces during a series of expert-led online workshops and webinars, covering a range of topics under four key themes – Money, Management, Marketing and Motivation. These businesses will soon be pitching for their chance to be selected as one of the eight finalists to progress through to the online National Final.

The National Final will be held online via Zoom on Tuesday 29th September, and we would be delighted if you are able to join us. During the event, the finalists will be pitching to two panels for their chance to be one of two winning businesses to each receive a prize of £30,000 seed funding. We will also be announcing the winner of the Emerging Entrepreneurs Crowdfunding Challenge, who will will be receiving £6,000 from Santander.

We are delighted to confirm that the judging panels this year will be led by Nathan Bostock, Chief Executive, Santander UK, and Susan Allen, CEO, Retail and Business Banking, Santander UK. We are also thrilled to announce that Nathan and Susan will be joined on the panels by Theo Paphitis (TV Dragon), Prue Leith (Chancellor, Queen Margaret University), Warwick Hill (Business executive and entrepreneur) and Julie Devonshire OBE (Director of the Entrepreneurship Institute at King’s College London). The event will be hosted by Seema Jaswal, professional sports host and journalist.
