What do Innocent Smoothies, Lastminute.com, The Carphone Warehouse and Dyson have in common?

The UK has an impressive track record of young entrepreneurs setting up industry-changing brands. That’s why RBS and Find Invest Grow have launched RBS EnterprisingU to find the next Innocent Smoothies.
RBS EnterprisingU has a total of £40,000 for young entrepreneurs, including a grand prize of £25,000. Every entrepreneur chosen for the semi-finals will also pitch their business in front of a panel of top investors looking to find their next company to fund and mentor.
The competition, in its second year, is open to students and anyone who graduated in the last five years. If you’re looking for funds to kick-start your innovative business idea, this is an incredible opportunity to unlock a huge cash prize and invaluable business advice.
Apply here before midnight on Friday July 19.
Last year, SalesGossip, an online and mobile service that alerts shoppers to sales in their city, and Ventive, a company that plans to produce a Passive Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit, took home the top prizes.
With Moneysupermarket.com, Sage and even Glasses Direct leading the way for businesses set up by students and recent graduates, who will be the next market-leading brand to take the UK by storm?
