Applications are flooding in for Local Business Accelerators, our latest campaign for the Newspaper Society. Almost 500 local newspapers are activating the initiative in their communities. They'll be seeking out Britain’s most promising fledgling businesses and supporting them with free advertising and professional mentoring.
The first of three full page press ads, designed by Ed and Dave has appeared in each participating title. Simultaneously campaign ambassador, Deborah Meaden, has been busy leading a national PR campaign to promote the scheme.

The campaign concludes in January 2012. There’s lots happening between now and then, so standby for more progress reports!
