Will you help a young entrepreneur win £1000 this Christmas?

Press release   •   Dec 16, 2012 21:28 GMT

Young Entrepreneur, Jacob Hill, has been finalised to win £1000 in the Shell LiveWIRE monthly awards with his business idea, The lazy Camper. Each month, Shell LiveWIRE awards (up to) 4 prizes of £1,000 to young entrepreneurs with the most innovative business ideas. 

Third time lucky!

After two unsuccessful attempts at winning the £1,000 monthly prize, Jacob Hill from the Lazy Camper hopes this will be the one!

"I first entered the awards a year ago when starting out with The Lazy Camper, unfortunately, I wasn't finalised but I didn't give up...

...The second time of applying, was august 2012, where The Lazy Camper got through to the final. unfortunately, due to being at festivals and university constraints I was unable to get the votes required to win."

After appearing on BBC 3's 'Be Your Own Boss', Jacob is now rallying friends, family and other supporters of The Lazy Camper  to vote for his idea in the Shell LiveWIRE competition. He has until the 31st December to gather as many votes as possible.

"I am eager to go 'all out' this time, pestering friends, businesses and organisations alike to make this work. It will be a great belated Christmas present!"

Should Jacob be successful in this award, he will automatically be entered in to the annual awards to win a further £10,000 from Shell LiveWIRE.

A follow up press release will be available the first week of January should the young entrepreneur experience success this time round.
