Applications for 2020 Business Advantage Awards now open
16 January 2020
Win £6,000 worth of support and mentoring for your new or early-stage business by applying for the university’s Business Advantage Awards.
The awards are open to Leeds Beckett students and graduates, with winners receiving up to 50 hours of legal and accountancy support and mentoring for their businesses, whether new or established.
Previous winners include Leeds Beckett graduates Avi Chinn, Adam Yousuf and Tom Tracey, who set up domestic cleaning platform CityCleaner2U in 2017 with partner Luke Smetham.
Avi said: “Thanks to our Business Advantage Award, we now have 100 cleaners ready to be approved onto our platform and the final hurdle is ensuring everything is technically efficient.’
George Lancaster, University Business Centre Coordinator, said: “I have been involved with the awards since inception, it has been fantastic seeing the impact of the support for businesses such as CityCleaner2U and we are really looking forward to being able to help a new cohort of winners this year.”
