Three students hit heights with elevator pitches

Entrepreneurs - Receive funding after winning an elevator pitch - SantanderCB

Three budding entrepreneurs from Huddersfield University have received funding after winning an elevator pitch competition run by Santander Universities.

All 12 businesses on Huddersfield University's Enterprise Placement Year were invited to compete, but first prize of £350 went to Matthew Jones and Nicole Rawson, of Ink, a creative design agency.

Tom Rotherham Music claimed second prize of £150. The EPY at Huddersfield is an alternative to a conventional employee-focused placement where third-year undergraduates spend the year exploring, researching and starting their own business.
