The Chairman’s Award is BACK 🙌

Could you use a one-off £5,000 injection into your business? 💸

Do you have a passion for genuinely improving people’s lives with your product and/or service? ✨

Then this award is for you! 🎉

The Chairman’s Award is a pitching event exclusively for members of the ICE Community (Welsh ICE members, Explorer subscribers and the 5-9 Club). Six people will be shortlisted for our special Celebration Evening where they will pitch live in front of the community for £5000 on November 23rd on campus at Welsh ICE.

Before our break in 2020, our first Chairmans Award back in 2019 was an emotional and moving night won by Master NLP Practioner, Dave Beadle, at Breakthrough Coaching.

Dave is kindly offering a one-day session to the 2021 winner where together you can work on any self-limiting beliefs linked to achieving your goals or plans. This day (plus a little more) is worth £950+ so is an amazing opportunity 🤩

Applications for this year’s Award open on the 13th of October and the deadline for submissions is the 31st of October.

There will then be a shortlist of 6 pitching in front of the Chairman and the community on November 23rd.

You can apply as an individual business or as part of a team.

The winning team will Demonstrate: 

  • A clearly defined vision that embodies the passions/convictions of the founders
  • A solution of genuine benefit to its intended users and others more broadly
  • A strong business model evidencing strong growth potential and offering employment opportunities
  • How they can develop themselves as their venture unfolds
  • How they can contribute to the ICE community

Who can apply?

This award is open to all current Welsh ICE members, 5-9 members and Explorer subscribers on ice.community.

How do I apply?

  1. Complete the application below (we recommend that you write this in a separate word document before submitting).
  2. Upload a maximum three-minute video telling us about your business or idea. This can be filmed on your phone so no need to hire a videographer! TIP: Why not create your slides and then record yourself presenting them as your video? If you’re not confident on camera (like most of us!) then you could do a voiceover screen record.

Please apply via the application form below. If you have any questions, email rachel@welshice.org.

Good luck!
