“Winning the Youth Entrepreneur Award gave me a new confidence in my work. Getting mentored was a huge help, I was able to understand more about my customers and how I could grow my small business.”

Kelly Blewitt (2023 winner)

“It’s given me a lot of confidence that someone likes what I’ve been doing, it has also been an amazing way to bounce ideas [with the business mentor] and its been great knowing they have your back.”

Sam Goga (2022 winner)

“The talent that bubbles up here [Gloucestershire] is amazing and all too often, has to leave to get their foot in the door. This award allows these people to dedicate time and financial resources to their project. This is of great significance and really needed.”

Tieti (2021 winner)
