Enter the Mayor’s Low Carbon Entrepreneur competition by 4 April

31 March 2014

The deadline for students to enter the Mayor’s Low Carbon Entrepreneur competition is at the end of this week.

You can enter as an individual or in a team, and the best idea to reduce London’s carbon emissions will win £20,000 to develop their idea. Paid internships are also up for grabs for the best runners-up from tech giant Siemens.

Submit your entries before it's too late.

Still on the fence?

Third year University of Westminster student Elliot Walton entered last year. While he didn’t win the grand prize, he secured himself a two week internship at City Hall and is now in talks with Siemens about a full time position or internship.

His advice? Form a team. Submit some ideas, no matter how crazy. Enhance your future career path. Watch Elliot’s video about his experience. Then submit your bright idea.
