The hunt is on for the individual whose business idea has been so inspirational they can be crowned “Prontaprint Entrepreneur of the Year 2012”
In the difficult economic climate, it’s designed to show that behind the doom and gloom headlines, Britain’s entrepreneurs are alive and kicking – or, rather, thriving, and just need to be unleashed.
The judges – including Andy Bounds, of the Financial Times, and Dragons’ Den winner Levi Roots - are looking for flair in any form, something which stands out from the crown, or the “eureka” moment which paid off. In short, inspiration for others.
Sara Jamison, CEO of Prontaprint said: “At Prontaprint we see and hear many original and outstanding commercial ideas, and we get asked for the most amazing display ideas, logos and direct mail campaigns. We really operate ‘at the sharp end’ and see lively ideas on a day to day basis, and want to share this with others.
“Maybe someone has are shown real growth in a competitive environment; strong return on investment; had an innovative advertising or marketing campaign; an inspired direct marketing or online campaign; or found a gap in the market that’s now soaring.
“Entries open today and close on December 12. Judging begins in January and the winner will receive a £5000 cash prize; an engraved glass trophy; and, of course, huge kudos for their business.”
Entrants can apply online via www.prontaprint.com or pick up a form in their regional Prontaprint centre.
Sara said: “We really want to identify the people who are helping Britain out of the recession while others like politicians just talk about it.”
