13 Mar 2019

Law firm DMH Stallard was represented on the judging panel recently at the final stage of business pitches in the Young Start-Up Talent competition.

The final five entrepreneurs are each hoping to be named the winner of the South East Entrepreneurial prize fund of business products and services. The winner, who will be named on April 2nd following a presentation and audience vote, will benefit from access to and support from the competition judges and sponsors.

Tony Hyams-Parish, Partner at DMH Stallard, said:

“It was inspiring to see such interesting and credible business propositions. I have no doubt that all of the finalists will be enormously successful in their new business ventures. It has been a real privilege for myself and DMH Stallard to take part in this process.”

The finalists are Tom Williams, Luke Baldwin, Rebecca Fitzgerald, Anthony Mellor, Hlanganiso Matangaidze, Tom Gray and William Venner.

Co-judges included Dave Kickham, Operations Director at Thales UK, Paul McConalogue, Director, Corporate & Commercial Gatwick Region for NatWest, Jon Maile, Partner at Grant Thornton Accountants, Mario Carrozzo, CEO at Caridon Property and Ana Christie, CEO of Sussex Chamber of Commerce.

Young Start-up Talent initially launched in Gatwick in 2010, encouraging young entrepreneurs aged between 16 - 25 years old to start their own business. Nine years on, the initiative has proven to be a great success, and is now run across the whole of the South East.
