Enterprise Day

This year’s Enterprise Day event opened with an opportunity for five young businesses to pitch to a panel of angel investors with prizes including a laptop, a Google training package of search engine optimisation support from the Local Enterprise Partnership and a 12-month subscription to Royal Mail’s Simple Ways to Grow package up for grabs.

Enterprise Day WinnerJo Blackburn of Sona Creative Marketing impressed the panel with her presentation and was delighted to be selected as winner.  Jo is a York St John Business School graduate and a recent participant on the Acorns Plus StartUp Programme.  Sona Creative Marketing is based in Phoenix Court - a think tank of bright creative young businesses for York St John University to champion. The objective is to support these entrepreneurs to produce robust, stable, and adaptable companies.
