The Big Pitch 2022 closed for entries on 25 March.

We received a total of 57 entries, a panel of expert judges and a public vote resulted in a shortlist of 20 bright business ideas. In May 2022, our student entrepreneurs will battle their way through a two-day residential Boot Camp at the Moller Institute to secure their place for this year's Grand Final. Book your place here!
