FINALISTS in a University of Brighton “bright ideas” contest visited 10 Downing Street to discuss student entrepreneurship.

The students met Government business adviser Jimmy McLoughlin on the invitation of Enterprise Nation, the business support tool available free to all student and graduate entrepreneurs from the university.

The five finalists later pitched their business ideas to a panel of judges from the local business community.

First prize of £2,000 went to Brighton Business School’s Harry Kimberley-Bowen with his Frugl’, which aims to tackle food waste by creating healthy, nutritious and affordable juices.

Second prize of £1,000 went to Tom Meades who made a Bluetooth speaker from recycled plastic and co-launched which aims to turn rubbish into useful products.

Third prize of £500 went to Debbie Wright, with her new baby changing bag.
