iDEA is a funding programme/competition to help young people develop either their digital skills or their digital business ideas, or both. It’s supported by the Nominet Trust (a charity we’ve worked with before at Podnosh and had a fantastic experience) with the backing of the Duke of York. They say:
Entrants will gain essential digital enterprise and entrepreneurial skills through the competition and can further develop these skills through our online library of industry endorsed badges. The three winning business ideas in the competition will be awarded £15,000 funding and accelerator support for further development. The project aims to recruit 10,000 young people into the competition in the next few weeks
Schools can get involved – and indeed are very welcome to use it as a way to develop digital skills. If you’re eligible or curious get stuck in.
