New Year, New Opportunities!

 Are you looking for a new and exciting Challenge this year?
 If so, Converge Challenge 2016 is ready for you! 
 2015 was an exciting year for Converge Challenge with over £100,000 of cash and in-kind support awarded to 11 participants from 6 Scottish universities, including our overall winner, Richard Walker from  Photon Force Ltd from the University of Edinburgh.
 Scotland’s premier company creation competition and development programme is now open for applications.  We will be travelling to 3 Scottish cities on  the 9th, 10th & 11th February to officially launch Converge Challenge 2016 with some information events and hope to see you there! 
We have lots of new developments to share about the 2016 programme, including new challenge prizes, new training developments, a brandnew Converge event, new partners and much more that will make 2016 our biggest, and most successful year yet!  
You will also hear about the progress of our alumni and can take part in a Q&A with an experienced panel of experts.  There will be plenty of time to network with everyone including key staff from Converge Challenge if you have any questions about your 2016 entry.
