Thought that discussion topic title might get some attention!
I wanted to make sure you'd all seen that we have a competition running this week with Crowdfunder and Propel by Deloitte which could mean a funding boost for your startup. It's open for entrepreneurs with a business based in the UK who sells products or services abroad.
All the information you need can be found here, and I'll be around to help with any questions.
Great eyecatching title @EmmaDingle I've submitted mine in word format, as per the T's & C's and as a form of extra promotion I've included my pitch below:
Did you know that there are 850 Chartered Town Planners in the North East & that only 3 in private practice headed up a Local Planning Authority. 2 of these are employed in a large faceless consultancy, however the other is a 'Gamekeeper' turned 'Poacher'.
I'm Chris, founder of Planning House & as a Poacher I have the skills and experience to navigate the planning system effectively.
Planning House provides realistic advice and support for a range of development projects in the North East & Yorkshire regions.
By understanding client needs I ensure that the right approach is taken for each project. Specialising in the Housebuilding sector, I work with Top 3 National Housebuilders to self-builders.
My aim however is to always maximise development opportunities because a potential building plot is just another piece of grass without planning permission.
So, if you're proposing a development contact planninghouse.co.uk.
