Inspire & Ignite

Empowering young people to follow their dreams – no matter what they are.

Flint Bishop has partnered with the University of Derby in the launch of its ‘Inspire & Ignite’ initiative aimed at supporting students to achieve their goals.

Have you always wanted to star in a radio show, work for the government, start a business or host a local charity event, but have been prevented because of a lack of funds or equipment, or just need a little bit of guidance in completing an application form?

We are delighted that through Inspire & Ignite, we can help you overcome these obstacles and get closer to achieving your goals.

What support can Flint Bishop offer you?

We would like to help students like you to fulfil your aspirations by:

  • Offering support and experience in the world of business;
  • Giving you a platform to pitch your ideas; and therefore
  • Receive support which may be financial, mentoring opportunities or advice.

How do you access this support?

Please put together a short brief as to what the goal is and what you need to achieve it and email it through to Bev Crighton at the University of Derby (click here to email Bev), who will collate these requests and will put forward your ideas to the dedicated team at Flint Bishop.

Once we have received your brief, we will invite you to ‘pitch’ your idea to a panel of people who will ultimately decide on what level of support we can offer you. The level of support is all dependent on the obstacle you are faced with and your pitch.

Who is eligible to apply?

If you are a current student of the University of Derby and have a viable dream that you can explain to our panel, which is usually made up of an Owner of the firm, a Partner and our Head of Marketing, we would like to hear from you.

There are no criteria to apply but we would ask that you have an idea of the type of support you may require, before applying.

“If you are able to dream it,
you are able to achieve it”
