Aged between 16 and 30? Want national press coverage, industry credentials, £10,000 and the chance to network with the absolute cream of the business world? All in return for a couple of days work – or even as little as a couple of hours? Need we ask?
Then get your pen out, because the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award is now open for applications.
It aims to recognise the most exciting new business-starters who are in their first year and half of trading. Previous winners include Glasses Direct’s Jamie Murray Wells and BrewDog’s James Watt – and their continuing success is testament to the profile of the accolade.
The deadline is September 11th, which with summer fast nearing its end will creep up much sooner than you think. So stop dithering and get stuck in to putting together your forms now – it could be the easiest funding you ever get your hands on. Luckily for you, we’ve gone and got all the insider tips from judges and winners in our feature on how to win awards as a small business so you can rest assured you’ll have the best shot possible.
