Last year, I fell in love with the Young Rural Entrepreneur award. It’s back!
Emma Blane gave us an update:
It may interest you to know that Lycetts and the Field have just launched the award for 2008, again offering £10,000 to the winner, who can demonstrate the requisite entrepreneurial spirit by running a company that is either based in the countryside or is making a sustainable contribution to the rural economy.
The award is open to rural entrepreneurs under 35. Entries will be welcomed till 4th August and nominations can be submitted by or on behalf of an individual who meets the awards criteria. For further information and to enter, please visit www.thefield.co.uk.
If you have any questions please send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org
I still love it! Imagine adapting this idea to your own region to support entrepreneurship and build a better connection to young entrepreneurs especially.
