Have you got a green business idea but don't know what to do with it?
Well, communications specialist Lewis PR might just have the answer.
On the 19th of November the company's Sustainable Technology Group is to host a "Green Dragon's Den meets X Factor" competition at its London Media Centre for budding eco-entrepreneurs.
The panel of "dragons" will be made up of venture capitalists Jon Edington from 3i and Alex Starling from Strata Partners, Dr John Blewitt of Exeter University’s sustainable development department, the secretive editor of the greenbang blog, and Clive Booth, head of Green PR at Lewis.
To further tempt those interested in running the gauntlet of the assorted green dragons the winning candidate will receive a month of free PR and marketing from Lewis, office technology from Lexmark, consultancy advice from Exeter University, and, perhaps most importantly, the chance to impress those VCs and their deep pockets.
Applications to showcase your big green idea close on October 31 and meanwhile if you are interested but are out of big ideas at the moment you can also register to be in the audience at the SusTech Forum site.
Hopefully we'll see you there.
