We’re Business Accelerator winners!

We are very proud to have been selected as one of the Harborough Mail’s Business Accelerator winners for 2013. We applied back in October and had to speak to a panel of experts about the salon and why we should win. It was quite nerve-wracking!

As winners, we will receive mentoring support and advice from marketing expert Alastair Campbell of The Ideal Marketing Company in Harborough, from Jason Hathaway of Edwards Hands & Lewis solicitors based at Harborough’s Union Wharf and Clare Elsby of Elsby & Co specialist business advisors based at the Harborough Innovation Centre.

Beauty Defined was started by Natalie Godefroy from her dining room in May 2011 and is now established in the wonderful setting of Union Wharf, Market Harborough.

“I’m really pleased. It’s wonderful news, absolutely fantastic because with small businesses you just come up against brick walls all the time.”

In June, the Harborough Mail will select an overall winner from the three local winners who will be put forward to the regional finals where they will go up against other newspapers’ winners from across the East Midlands. The overall national winner of the scheme will be announced in the autumn and will get support from business guru Deborah Meadon of Dragons’ Den fame.

Wish us luck!
