This year's challenge takes place at Nottingham Business School on November 19

Businesses looking for free help to support their growth are being encouraged to submit problems to this year's Thinkubator Challenge before Monday 10 November to benefit from the expertise of up to 1,500 academics, research students, business postgraduates and final year undergraduates at Nottingham Business School.

At last year's inaugural ground-breaking event, 60 businesses from across the UK received free advice on topics such as marketing, human resources and funding.

This year's challenge takes place at Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University, on 19 November 2014 and submissions can be made until 10 November via the Thinkubator website

Businesses are encouraged to submit a range of problems from financing production and entering new markets, to finding the right employees and attracting investment.

With access to the full resources of Nottingham Business School, the participants will be split into hubs to focus on one individual challenge at a time over the course of an afternoon.

Organisations submitting challenges do not have to attend the event but will receive a response on the day which outlines the hub’s thinking, recommendations and advice on practical steps to take.

Dean of Nottingham Business School, Professor Baback Yazdani, said: "Thinkubator 2013 was a huge success but we want to make this year even bigger and better. We're inviting businesses large and small to come forward with their problems and benefit from the wealth of expertise and talent at Nottingham Business School and Nottingham Trent University."

David Dews, managing director of Speed, a web, brand and creative agency, took part in last year's challenge and as a result employed of a new member of staff, restructured staffing priorities and redesigned the company website. He said: "Taking part in the Thinkubator Challenge was a very positive experience for many reasons. The academics and students taking part, with their collective knowledge and expertise, were able to pin point issues very quickly and had a swift level of understanding for the different challenges affecting Speed. It felt as if they knew the business inside-out."
