Shortlist Announced for YBG Bill Green Award

Entries are in for the 2015 Bill Green Award for Entrepreneurial Spirit, and the judges have announced a shortlist of three companies.

Avenue Clinic, Ben Le Prevost Chocolatier and the Pet Technology Store impressed the judging panel, comprised of members of Startup Guernsey, Guernsey Chamber of Commerce and Young Business Group (‘YBG’).

YBG president Wing Lai said that each year the award attracted a high number of entries, and that 2015 had been no different.

‘We saw entries from various sectors of the Guernsey business market. Not only does this highlight the value of the Bill Green Award but also the diversity of local businesses.

‘The quality of the entries was highly impressive, with it proving very difficult for the judges to produce a shortlist. We would therefore like to congratulate the three shortlisted companies and we look forward to the final presentations.’

The shortlisted candidates will now be invited to an informal interview with members of the judging panel on Wednesday 29th April, where they will do a brief presentation and answer questions. The winner will be announced on Friday 19th June at the annual YBG Summer Ball which is sponsored by IAG.

The award, which is run by YBG on behalf of the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, is for new or established businesses which are making their mark on the local business scene with a fresh direction or project.

This year’s judges are Carl Symes of Startup Guernsey; Fionnuala Carvill representing Guernsey Chamber of Commerce; Wing Lai, President of YBG; Lindsey Dean, Vice President of YBG and Gillian Mabbett, Former President of YBG.

Previous winners include IBZ.TV, Fusion Leisure Limited, The Learning Company and Livingroom Estate Agents.

Tickets are still available for the YBG Summer Ball on 19th June.
