What is Million Makers?
Companies and universities are rallying together

the Million Makers campaign. Million Makers is an
entrepreneurial competition that challenges teams
to compete against each other to raise the most amount of
income and be crowned Million Makers champions.
Entering a team in University Million Makers is a fantastic
opportunity to impress corporate organisations, especially those
that are taking part in Corporate Million Makers, such as ATOS,
EMC, and Admiral Group plc.
How does it work?
There are four stages to the University Million Makers
