News: Prototype of a successful business


Gavin Winder and Joshua Abbotts, both 26, have been named the Best New Start Up at the Rotherham Young Entrepreneur Awards 2008 for their graphic and web design business, Prototype Creative. The Barnsley College graduates set the business up in February 2007 after getting some invaluable experience in the trade. They now have a string of corporate clients and their unusual approach to design is really taking off. Gavin said: "We always said we’d set up a business together at college, but both of us went off and did our own thing, although we did still see each other socially. "One day we were saying how we’d be millionaires if we set up that business together - so we did." The pair moved into a small office at RiDO-run Century Business Centre at Manvers with six months rent-free on a Youth Enterprise scheme. They now employ two staff and have already moved to the biggest office available at the centre and are looking to employ more. Gavin said: "The award is a great pat on the back for us. We’ve worked really hard these past 18 months and it’s great to know that other people think you’re doing good a good job too."
