£10,000 Prize – Securing The Nation For SME’s

February 10, 2017

BT has teamed up with the Cabinet Office and TechHub to find small companies with big ideas that can help tackle the nation’s security challenges. Securing the Nation is the latest in a series of competitions aimed at supporting the UK’s best digital talent, helping them to turn their ideas into reality

There are three categories in the competition namely: Cyber Security; Data collection, mining and analytics; and Digital innovation.

The winners of each of the three categories will receive a £10,000 cash prize, plus the unique opportunity to develop their ground breaking idea with the support of BT for six months. And that’s not all, BT’s partners TechHub are offering a six-month flex membership to help the winners take their businesses to the next level.

Entering is easy

1) First decide which of the three categories you’d like to enter. You can find more information about these in the overview section above. Then fill out the application form contained in the briefing pack.

2) We would like you to include a short video telling us about your idea. We’d like to hear a bit about your business, as well as your idea and how you think it could help overcome a security challenge. The video should be no longer than 5 minutes.

3) Finally upload your video to the link in the briefing pack by Friday 3 March, 2017

Each submission will be reviewed before inviting finalists from each category to attend the live pitch session at the BT Tower on the 4 April.
