Dragons' Den competition for young professionals in the construction industry

The CLC and BEIS have launched a Dragons' Den style competition, sponsored by the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF), targeted at young professionals in the industry, to accelerate the sector's drive to net zero.

The competition aims to:

  • bring forward practical ideas which are almost ready for implementation on sites/in factories, and suitable for wider industry adoption;
  • capitalise on the collective political, industry and societal demand to reduce emissions levels; and to
  • harness the power and voice of young professionals already working in the sector, providing support to accelerate their practical ideas to implementation.

Short-listed applicants will present their ideas to the Construct Zero Dragon's Den for debate and discussion, with the winner receiving a range of prizes including a £1,000 cash award. This is an exciting opportunity for young industry professionals to pitch existing ideas to the heart of Government. Further details including how to apply can be found here.
