Two UK companies are working together to award the Young Rural Entrepreneur of 2007. I love this!
Our Friends at the Business Opportunities Blog caught this story. The two companies are Lycetts (insurance) and The Field (magazine). The prize is £10,000. The age limit is 35. The focus is on rural businesses that are giving back to or sustaining the rural economy.
Most importantly the award will be a reflection of just how well this business interacts with and benefits rural economies and communities.
You can nominate a young rural UK entrepreneur, if they are too shy to nominate themselves. The deadline is August 12, 2007.
