What Is It?
Intuit 100Up is a co-ventured campaign between Intuit and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), supported by the National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs (NACUE), to create a new and unique enterprise community of 100, high-potential start-ups and aspirant entrepreneurs.
100Up will create a unique community of entrepreneurs at the beginning of their careers. It is an initiative that will seek to celebrate, inspire and accelerate their full potential. It will build on BIS’s ‘Business in You’ campaign, a partnership between private enterprise and Government to highlight support for start-ups and growing businesses and encourage entrepreneurial spirit in 2012.
The community will come to life at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress and will continue to exist as an inspirational group that will learn, share and champion the ideals of enterprise:
