Business Booster Competition – Shortlist Revealed!

We’re on a mission to help small businesses thrive and grow, which is why we created the Business Booster Competition. We’re offering not just one, but two creatives the chance to win a £3,500 business boosting prize package – but with so many incredible entries, we turn to you, the public, to help us choose our winner!


How we’re boosting businesses

As part of the prize, we’re also giving the two creatives the opportunity to exhibit at Top Drawer S/S 2018, the UK’s leading international design-led event, with sponsorship from us. Plus, they’ll get tailored coaching and business development from Creators Club, who support and inspire creative business owners with the personal and practical elements of being self-employed. But that’s not all! They’ll also get their hands on a printing package worth £500, exhibition stand build and pack down support, and marketing and sales training on how to grow. We’re a generous bunch sometimes, we know!

We were overwhelmed by the number of brilliant creative businesses who got involved, so a big thank you all the entries, and congratulations to our semi-finalists below! Remember to like their picture on Facebook to help them win a finalist spot! Voting closes midnight 22nd November.
