The official deadline for the commscamp 15 new idea fund has passed. But don’t fret, given that it’s holiday time, we’ve decided to extend the chance to get your hands on some cash to 30 September.
A few people approached us and said they were interested but that their jollies were getting in the way. Now we’re all for holiday time and we’re all for really good things coming from commscamp so we thought making it easy for people to apply made 100% sense.
That means you definitely have no excuse now. Get your thinking caps on, work with quality folk, connect on some ideas and see what you can do. Big or little, simple or something that’s never been done before, we want to hear from you.
It doesn’t take a lot either. And what’s up for grabs is really quite excellent. The lovely Muster Point have agreed to sponsor the pot so it’s doubled to £700 and Christine Townsend from Muster Point is also offering a year of free full use of MusterPoint and mentorship to the lucky winner. This involves providing feedback on the idea, helping to shape it and – potentially – looking at how to get further investment or support. You couldn’t ask for more really so do give it some thought and take this opportunity up.
What do you have to do?
It’s open to anyone to get involved, whether you were at commscamp 15 or not.
Then just tell us a few straightforward things on one side of A4.
- Your name and your contact details including your @Twitter handle
- Name of idea/project
In no more than 100 words describe your idea and then answer the following questions:
- How would your idea make a difference and who would it benefit?
- How much funding do you require to make a start?
- How long would your idea/project take to be delivered?
- How will you evaluate the success of your idea – how will you know it has worked?
- What is the social part of your new idea?
- List those colleagues who would be involved in delivering your idea
Send it to us email@example.com by Wednesday 30 September.
We’ll judge with Christine and announcement a winner the first week in October. There, it’s as simple as that.
