The Haines Watts Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition 2015
Are you under 36 years old? Do you run your own business and want to stand out in a crowd? If so, then the Haines Watts Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition could well be for you!
There are increasing numbers of successful young entrepreneurs in the UK and one of the ways that some ‘stand out from the crowd’ is their ability to differentiate their business. This pays dividends when the market sector is crowded and the economy is picking up so customers have more buying power.
In a recent report, the New Policy Institute research group* said 29 per cent of 19-25 year-olds are in poverty – a six-point increase on a decade ago and the biggest rise seen in any age group. It found that the main reason was a fall in the employment rate among young people but housing costs were also a factor.
The HWYE 2015 competition kicks off on Monday 2 March.
