LBA winner’s announced across the country!

Today the Prime Minister congratulated Local Business Accelerators winners up and down the country saying, "Entrepreneurship, creativity and ambition are essential for our economic recovery and through Local Business Accelerators, newspapers are supporting some great new British businesses to grow, and helping to boost their local economy.”

We launched LBA back in October. Since then, the scheme has gathered momentum. The Business Growth Fund, an investment initiative worth £2.5bn, has teamed with LBA to identify investment opportunities amongst the list of entrants. The Prime Minister went on to say, “It's brilliant that so many promising young companies, from such a wide range of sectors, are benefitting from this excellent initiative.”

Deborah Meaden, the LBA ambassador said, "I wish the newspapers, businesses and their mentors every success over the coming months."

We’ll be announcing an over all national winner very soon!

Growth is toast without business hosts to do most for those who love to toast growth with growth... & red, red wine...
