Young Entrepreneurs Get Ready to Celebrate Success

More than 300 local young entrepreneurs took part in this year’s Young Enterprise Awards held at Hallmark Hotel, Hull. The awards, aimed at recognised and encouraging the most outstanding active young entrepreneurs from the region.

With various kinds of businesses participating in the awards, the head judge for this year’s awards was Yorkshire Staffing Services Managing Director – Jo Fleming.

Commenting on the awards, Jo said “The competition is really beneficial for young people. It offers an opportunity to celebrate the wealth of young talent which exists locally and provides a platform for them to showcase their qualities and entrepreneurial spirit of our young people. It helps them understand the level of capability at which businesses need to operate.”

“As a judge you get to see young people who are passionate about business, see them establish broader networks and make progress through practical learning.”

“The awards are a journey, through which, participants are required to avoid the many pitfalls that exist in business on a daily basis.”

“Without awards and initiatives such as this, there is very little out there to help young people prepare for business.”

“I’ve been involved in these awards for many years now and it really is very rewarding to see just how good these young people are.”
