16th September 2010 heralded the grand final of The Pitch 2010, co-sponsored by Business Environment.
A superb business conference with talks from TV Dragon – Doug Richard, Enterprise Tsar Lord Young and Founder of Adeptra – Eric Van der Kleij, featured the highlight final event consisting of the regional winners of The Pitch.
The judges (Julie Meyer, Tim Campbell, Karen Darby & Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones) chose Active Minds to be the winner and receive £50,000 worth of business funding and support, from the six finalists. Active Minds, founded by Ben Atkinson-Willes, offers a range of award winning activity products specifically developed for people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
The event was a superb showcase for start-up and growing businesses and offered a great chance to hear tips from successful entrepreneurs and network amongst fellow business people.
Business Environment, the UK’s premium provider of serviced offices, would like to wish Ben and his team great success in their very worthwhile products and causes.
