Start-up superstars

YOUNG entrepreneurs could gain a slice of up to £1million for their business ventures in a new TV series.

The search is on for groups with business ideas, kicking off with a challenge for the best 500 applicants, who will be given some cash to see how easily they can turn a profit.
