Calling all start-ups

Here's a challenge no start-up can afford to miss.

The JC, in partnership with some of the country's most respected businessmen, will be announcing details of a competition to find - and reward - the brightest and best in entrepreneurial talent.

From September 14, companies that have been trading for under two years, or an aspiring entrepreneur with a solid business plan, will be invited to pitch their ideas and have the chance to win some real money.

Five of the countries most respected businessmen will mentor a final five before selecting a winner. And the winner won’t just go away with a certificate - but genuine investment from some of the biggest names in business.

Details will be revealed shortly but we urge anyone who is interested to start working on their business plans. You might just be the next big thing.
