Since the competition launched in 2015 the judges have been overwhelmed by the quality of new businesses in the local area and the innovation they have shown. The two previous winners both excelled in the “den” and their prizes have led to the further progression for their businesses.
“Winning the Salter’s Den competition has helped transform Nearcut from a part time interest to a sustainable business.
2016 Winner – Will Bell, Technical Director
Salter’s Den turned out to be the best decision of my journey as a start-up. The advice I received during my presentation was invaluable and the support that I got after, and continue to receive to this day helped me take my business to the next level. If you are considering entering the competition I would strongly recommend it, you have nothing to lose but your limitations.’
