Be enterprising and win £4,000
There’s still time to enter the fifth annual Social Enterprise Innovation Award, with a £4,000 first prize up for grabs.
The award supports social enterprises in West Sussex and is run by the West Sussex Social Enterprise Network together with West Sussex County Council.
The 2010 award was launched at the end of November. The deadline is fast approaching (Monday January 31), and people are being urged to ensure they enter in time.
Individuals and organisations must submit proposals for innovative ideas to deliver products or services with clear economic, social or environmental benefits.
County Council Cabinet Member for Environment and Economy Deborah Urquhart said: “There’s a first prize of £4,000 for the winning entrant, which must be used to develop the idea into a business.
“They will also get one to one support and advice to help with the development of the proposal.”
The 2009 award winner was Hassocks Community Partnership and a project for the set-up of a local cycle hire business close to Hassocks Railway Station to encourage sustainable tourism, and provide activities for local schools and the community.
