Here at Greatbase we’re all very excited by the news that we’ve been shortlisted for the regional heats of the national Local Business Accelerators competition. Backed by David Cameron and with Deborah Meaden from Dragon’s Den as the national ambassador, hundreds of local businesses from across the UK entered the awards – an initiative run by the regional press industry to boost local business.
The Edinburgh Evening News named us as one of their top five Edinburgh businesses that will compete in the final for the regional award. The winner will be announced on 6 February and they will go on to compete against eleven other regions in the UK for the top spot. We’re keeping our fingers crossed!
Last week Katie had her Dragon Den style interview in front of a panel of top business experts including Kwik Fit founder Sir Tom Farmer and former Businesswoman of the Year Liz McAreavey. You can read about it on the Evening News website.
