There are just eight days left for new catering equipment businesses to enter a competition by Local Business Accelerators (LBA) that will see companies awarded a range of prizes to boost their exposure and drive sales.
The initiative, which is run by the regional press industry to boost local businesses, is fronted by Dragons’ Den judge Deborah Meaden.
The overall grand prize includes a free advertising campaign in a local newspaper and free advice from local business experts.
Companies can also win free business broadband for a year and a website from BT, a £10,000 cash sum from the Business Growth Fund, an iPad and free software from Freeagent and one year’s free membership of the CBI. Meaden herself has also offered to provide mentoring services.
The competition is free to enter and applicants must simply fill out a form on the LBA website. To be eligible to apply businesses must have been established for between one and five years.
