News: Young entrepreneurs moving on up


The winners of last year's Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards say their businesses have been booming in 2009 - despite the economic gloom.

Josh Abbotts and Gavin Winder at Prototype Creative have reported a good year's business.

The pair, who run their graphic and web design agency out of another RiDO-run business centre – Century at Manvers – have seen full order books without even trying to get the work in.

Josh said: "We've done very little to get more work – it just keeps on coming in from word of mouth. We find often the best way of marketing yourself is by doing a really good job.

"Small jobs may not be the most profitable on the surface – but do them well and people will often be back with bigger orders."

The deadline to enter the Rotherham Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards 2009 is July 19th.
