Ford uk innovation challenge finalists 2017
Congratulations to our three finalists in the Ford UK Innovation Challenge who will pitch their project to Ford senior executives on 25th September for the opportunity to receive £25,000 of funding for their project. The winning project will be announced in a special Ford networking reception the next day at the Enactus World Cup. Find out about the three finalist teams and their projects below:
Enactus Sheffield - Motion a social enterprise that designs and delivers chair-based exercise sessions with the intent of increasing physical mobility, reducing social isolation and improving quality of life of the elderly in care homes.
Enactus Edinburgh - Slurp an enterprise that aims to help homeless young adults get the work experience and financial support necessary to assist in securing a stable job in their desired field. They are breaking the homeless cycle through a soup and bread making enterprise.
Enactus Nottingham - Foodprint a project that works towards battling food waste through redistributing close-to-expiry date food. Its aim is to create a market for food which would otherwise be disposed of by big conglomerates, and develop a demand for cheaper than retail price/quick use food.
