Preston entrepreneurs now have just one week left to apply for Guild Merchants competition.

As previously reported, Preston City Council has allocated a large sum of money to be given to a new business in a Dragon’s Den style competition.

To be considered, all you have to do is visit the BID (Business Improvement District) website and fill in your details along with your new business idea.

Peter Rankin, Leader of Preston City Council said:   “This is a fantastic opportunity for five budding entrepreneurs in Preston to realise their ambition. It will benefit the High Street by bringing five empty shops back into use and add to Preston’s offer.

What makes it even more exciting is that the people of Preston will be able to vote for the five they would most like to see in the city centre from a shortlist of 10.

The High Street Innovation Fund has enabled us to organise a competition of this nature and we are proud to support it.  I look forward to seeing the winning applications open for business.”

The ten finalists will be shown to the public who will help to decide the winner.

The competition closes on March 31, so apply now here.
