In November we shared the news that former BBC Dragon’s Den entrepreneur, Theo Paphitis, had selected us as an #SBS winner. Well last week we got to attend the annual #SBS Winners Event in Birmingham to receive the award from the man himself.
The event is now in its 5th year of running and every #SBS winner is invited. As well as receiving our award we also had the opportunity to hear Theo speak, to pitch to the Robert Dyas’ buyers and to take part in a Q&A with a panel of entrepreneurs, as well as network with our fellow winners.
We think it’s fantastic that a man known for his associations with large, corporate businesses does such a lot to support small businesses such as ours – though of course we have very big ambitions!
