We’re very excited to be attending the Local Business Accelerators Grand Final on Thursday.
Launching in October, Local Business Accelerators saw local papers selecting the most promising fledgling businesses in their area and giving them a boost – free local advertising and the support of local business mentors. BBC ‘Dragon’ Deborah Meaden is the ambassador of the scheme and Thursday marks the announcement of the overall winner.
More than 3,000 businesses have entered and the initiative has been supported by high profile figures including the Prime Minister, the CBI’s director general and the Bank of England.
The PM said: "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.”
