North East business trust up for award

A not-for-profit business support organisation which boosts employability and entrepreneurship skills is celebrating after being shortlisted in the finals of prestigious lifestyle awards.

Enterprise North East Trust (Enterprise) is a finalist in the Trend Life With Style Awards 2014 in the Community Award category in recognition of its impact on the local community.

The annual awards recognise the achievements of local businesses and their contribution to the life and style of the North-east.

Judges were impressed by Enterprise’s recent announcement about its plans to launch a world-class centre for entrepreneurship in the heart of Aberdeen.

Proposed to open in autumn of this year, it will include a unique 13-week business accelerator programme for start up businesses in various sectors who show promise of high growth potential.
