Apply here – Enterprising Young Brits Awards hots up

There are only a few weeks left to apply for the competition, which is looking to find Britain’s most promising young business brains.

Run by Enterprise UK, in partnership with the Daily Mail, the Institute of Directors and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, the competition says it has already attracted hundreds of applicants, but wants more.

Enterprising Young Brits offers under-30s the opportunity to win £1,000, the opportunity to become an Enterprise UK ambassador, and some high-profile PR to help get them started.

Previous winner Adam Duffy, who won the creative section of the Enterprising Young Brits last year with his Looks Can Kill bespoke footwear range, says winning the award was an enormous step in developing his business.

“The creative industries are very competitive, and in the early days of starting a business you can sometimes feel as though the odds are stacked against you. The competition increased my credibility, which helped in my dealings with internationally renowned brands.”

Applicants can apply for up to two of the following categories: new start-up; social, ethical or environmental; teen; creative; and the open category. But applications must be in by March 5, so apply soon!
