BT Business Essence of the Entrepreneur

No primary category set

essence_smallAre you a budding entrepreneur? The chances are if you sell on eBay that you are, in which case why not enter the BT Business Essence of the Entrepreneur competition.

With a judging panel including Peter Jones of Dragon’s Den fame, and Claire Young The Apprentice finalist they’ll be looking for creativity and originality as well as business acumen.

There is a £10,000 business grant up for grabs as well as recognition for your business and a unique photograph to be taken by Rankin of the 20 finalists. The photograph will be an inspirational portrait that reflects the spirit of your business and be exhibited at London’s gallery@oxo in January 2010. The examples of Rankins previous finalist photos are well worth browsing.

Whilst previous winners have covered a variety of industries including online there haven’t been many internet retailers winning. Seeing as the competition is billed as a “search for inspirational British companies who are using technology to drive their business forward” it’s about time an eBay seller won!
