Deborah fronts campaign to promote local businesses
For the second year, Deborah is fronting the Local Business Accelerators campaign. The LBA scheme is an initiative supported by Business in You and backed by the Prime Minister David Cameron. It will find the most promising fledging businesses across the UK and provide them with free advertising in their local paper, plus ongoing mentoring support from local business leaders. The aim is to help drive their businesses to great success and create awareness that local press is essential in the current media and business landscape.
With over 500 local newspapers taking part and £15 million worth of free advertsing available for businesses aged one to five years old, the competition encourages enterprise and entrepreneurism in the local community and is a fantastic opportunity!
One winner will be selected from all of the entrants in October 2013 and this one business will win mentorship from me for a year.
