What happened to the winners of Loughborough Service Jam 2014?
The team who won the 2014 Service Design Jam attended a business workshop run by the Enterprise Office (winners prize) and have met several times since to develop the service idea as a student enterprise with a business plan. This is currently being considered in relation to Tier 1 Visa approval. Opportunities are also being sought to gain funding to help launch the service.
What have winners of 2013 Jam been up to?
The team who won the 2013 Service Design Jam, “Grow Nation” (previously known as EatMe!) won the Social Enterprise Award as well as Marketest case prize at the Loughborough University’s Think Big Prize (totalling £5,500).
