You are required to submit evidence of the following:

1. Develop a network to support start-up opportunities.

2. Conduct sufficient research to inform a start-up opportunity.

3. Effectively communicate a start-up opportunity to key stakeholders.


To earn this EduBit, all work  must be your own and you must submit evidence exactly as requested in the Task instructions. 

When you've finished gathering your evidence, press Purchase. Trained and experienced assessors are standing by to evaluate your evidence and provide feedback on how you did for each task, as well as how you did overall. 

  • If your evidence does not yet meet the requirements, we will provide feedback on what is missing and encourage you to practice your skills and attempt the EduBit again at a later date.  
  • If there are minor gaps in your submission evidence, you will be given the opportunity to resubmit. You will have 10 working days to add the missing evidence and submit for re-evaluation. 
  • If you have any questions, please check our Frequently Asked Questions or feel free to email us at
