social media pop up stall

Leicester College’s All things Enterprise Society is launching a Pop-Up Stall Competition aimed at all learners including Higher Education courses.

The Competition has been sponsored by Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

Win £100 to get your idea off the ground and sell to the public…

So what’s it all about?

Do you have a great idea for a product or service  and you want to see if it you could make some money and turn it into a business? or maybe you want to see if people like what you do?

Why not submit your idea and you could be in with a chance of winning £100 to help you set up your own pop-up stall. The stall will enable you to sell you product or service to the public on Wednesday 10 May at the Get Jobwise event at the Leicester Arena (home of Leicester Riders).

What is a pop-up stall?

A pop-up shop or pop-up stall is where you have a short-term sales space selling products such as food, clothing, fashion accessories or services such as selling tickets for an event.

What you need to do…

The idea:
