CitySpark

What is it?

CitySpark is a business ideas competition open to all City students and recent alumni.

CitySpark focusses on finding problems, identifying real gaps in the market and building evidence based startups from day one. CitySpark places a core focus on encouraging students to ‘get out of the building’, meet target customers and develop a full understanding of the problem to be solved. This provides an excellent starting point for brilliant ideas to develop in to fully-fledged business ventures.

The competition is split into two challenges taking place throughout the academic year to help you develop your entrepreneurial skills and launch your business.
