Do you have an innovative or enterprising business idea that you want to shout about? If so, we want to hear from you!

Make it British receives lots of enquiries from businesses looking to manufacture product in the UK – be that a new brand just starting out and needing help with sourcing and production, or an established store group that is looking to reshore its manufacturing.

We also hear about lots of UK manufacturers that are doing innovative things and want some exposure for the work they are doing.

So this year we have decided to launch a competition to give those businesses a chance to shine.

At our Meet the Manufacturer event on 25th and 26th May we will be running a conference, and part of the agenda will include a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style competition.

Shortlisted businesses will have the opportunity to present their ideas in a 5 minute pitch to our panel of experts live at the event. The winner in each category will win a prize to the value of £1000 and a chance to benefit from some great publicity for their business.


Enterprising manufacturers and designers who wish to be in with a chance to pitch at the conference are invited to submit their ideas by 22nd April 2016 to be considered.
