Good Business Challenge – next steps

We would like to thank those of you that participated in The Northbank Good Business Challenge over the summer. The RSA/Northbank Good Business Challenge was an opportunity for you to present ideas for events, attractions, projects, innovations or ventures to The Northbank team to make the BID a vibrant, experimental area for sustainable and successful business. The Northbank BID will support Good Business initiatives over the next few years, helping your ideas to become a reality to bolster the local CSR strategy.

Whether you submitted an idea, commented or rated someone else’s or just registered a profile to show your interest, we’re really grateful for all of the contributions. We were really struck by the creativity, ambition and integrity of the ideas.

Since it closed at the end of July the RSA compiled all the ideas and comments and sent them through to the BID team. We are delighted with the interest and involvement it has triggered and are deciding which ideas they want to pursue further, and how. We have seen lots of useful connections between these ideas so while only some can attract direct investment from The Northbank, others could still happen by integrating them with pre-existing initiatives.

These ideas will evolve so keep an eye on how they develop over time.
