A business based at SETsquared’s Exeter Innovation Centre has won the inaugural Born Global business competition beating 90 other companies from across the South West in a bid to find the best business idea with global potential.
Fantasy Shopper was crowned GWE Business West's Born Global Business 2011 in front of an audience of 100 leading international business experts, mentors and investment angels.
Would-be entrepreneurs from the universities of the SETsquared Partnership have recently been pitching their business ideas at Deloitte in London in a competition to encourage student enterprise.
The winners came from the Universities of Bath and Exeter, who had to present their business plans to a panel of experienced consultants from leading business advisory firm Deloitte. Of the 21 students who presented their plans, the judges awarded two prizes of £100 and two of £50. The winning business plans ranged from workshops for children to a customer-friendly chain of garages.
