National Business Accelerator

Yesterday I presented along with our investor, mentor and general SoV sage, Alan Kitching, at the regional finals of the National Business Accelerator Award. The award has been set up to provide £15m of free advertising to a range of entrepeneurial, fast growth companies, with the overall winner receiving a years mentoring from Deborah Meadon of Dragon's Den fame. An amazing number of companies entered and we are down to the last 6 in our region, with 3 going on to the national finals early next year.

It is a real accolade to have made it this far and we are proud to be flying the flag for Yorkshire and the North of England and proving that the recession doesnt have to be all doom and gloom.

The session yesterday was very much a Dragon's Den style arrangement with 5 dragons representing leading blue chip companies,  cameramen, a darkened room and questions thrown at you from all angles. Anyone who knows me will know I get off on challenging situations like that, so I very much enjoyed it! Hopefully we have done enough to progress to the next stage! Fingers crossed.

Winners are announced on January 13th in the Yorkshire Post.

Wish us luck!
