If you’re an entrepreneurial sort and are trying to launch a company in the green space, rock up to Lewis PR’s Dragon’s-Den-meets-X-Factor event on November 19.
You’ll be faced by a panel of tough investors and media sorts, who will try to pull your company to pieces.
If you make it through to the end, you could win a month of free PR and marketing from Lewis, investor support from 3i, office technology from Lexmark, and advice from Exeter University. [Greenbang is told this is in writing reports, but never trust an academic’s English…;)]
The scheme is led by Clive Booth (pictured) – a journalist who went to the dark side. He’s very keen on the green space and has organised a few booze-ups with eco-industry folk, so he’s alright by Greenbang…
Here’s the blurb:
