Talented entrepreneurs have a 'fantastic' opportunity to take their business to the next level thanks to a Mercury competition.
The Weston Super Startup competition has launched to offer a burgeoning business brain a ‘great platform’ to grow their enterprise.
The competition offers creative, digital or technology businesses in their infancy the chance to compete for a 12-month membership for Weston’s co-working hub The Stable, in Wadham Street, worth more than £1,000.
Businesses have until May 31 to apply, and The Stable has a long list of networking events coming up which offer great tips to help entrants hone their pitch.
Shortlisted entrants will go before a panel of experts to bid for the prize, which could be the big break you need on the path to making your business a success.
General manager Kerry O’Neill hopes Weston Super Startup ‘appeals to the town’s pool of incredibly-talented people’.
She said: “Loads of people are trying to run their fantastic businesses from home or cafés and they’re getting distracted, lonely, and generally going a bit mad.
“We’ve got a bright co-working loft with first-class facilities, and other like-minded people to talk to and to bounce ideas off.
“The competition is a brilliant opportunity for innovative new businesses and enterprises to discover what we’re doing, and I can’t wait to see who enters.”
Mercury editor Tom Wright said: “Weston has expanded a lot, and with its population set to swell in the years ahead, there has arguably never been a better time for businesses to grow here.
“While big high-street firms often dominate the media’s headlines, we at the Mercury want to help a fledgling business get their great idea off the ground.
“Every business has had to start somewhere and a leg up can be crucial to long-term success.
“The Stable offers a great platform for a newly-formed business to access facilities and contacts which would otherwise be beyond its reach and I am really grateful for Kerry and the team for offering up this fantastic prize.
“If you think this opportunity is for you then I urge you to take a chance and go for it – it could be the break your business needs.”
