University Million Makers

We are challenging teams of students to show off their entrepreneurial talent and raise as much income as they can in a month for The Prince's Trust.  

What is Million Makers?Fundraising foursome

Companies and universities are rallying together to raise £1million for The Prince’s Trust through 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 competition:

  • Recruitment October to November 2014
  • Planning: November to December 2014

Before you start any activity teams need to think about how, when, where and what the activity will be.

With the support from a Prince’s Trust mentor, teams complete a business plan. They can also use the months of November through to January to prepare and promote their activity.

  • Action: The Challenge; February 2015

In February team must deliver their ideas and raise as much funds as they can within 4 weeks. The team that raises the most within the 4 weeks wins! All income must reach The Prince’s Trust by 28th February

  • Report; March 2015

Hopefully throughout the University Million Makers challenge you have learnt a great deal. As a way of rounding up your experience we ask you produce and submit a short report. This will hopefully help you identify skills that you have learnt.

All teams that raise funds will have the opportunity to compete against companies to win either the entreprenurial award or innovation award. These awards are judged through an online application.

The challenge was exciting and different; I learnt so many useful practical business skills such as networking and sales techniques. It was a really worthwhile experience and now my CV looks great.
