04 Jan Cross Keys Strivers Go Before The Dragons
Cross Keys Homes has recently held a Dragons Den style event for fifteen budding entrepreneurs who have recently completed a twelve week business start-up course. The successful candidates will receive a share of a pot of money towards their business start-up costs.
The participants in the event have recently completed a business start-up course run for Cross Keys Homes by Enterprise Cube. The course involved all aspects of starting up and running a successful small business. Businesses vying for the money include a hairdresser specialising in wigs for those suffering hair loss, a dog walking service, an exotic pet business and a company selling Polish food. There was also a Dr Who and sci fi memorabilia trader and a couple of mechanics.
One of the Dragons was Claire Higgins, Deputy Chief Executive of Cross Keys Homes, who said, “I was so impressed with the quality of goods and services on offer. We are still debating over which companies should receive the money – they were all so deserving. It has been one of the hardest decisions I have made this year! The course participants have made such great progress and are well on their way to running successful businesses. We wish them all the best of luck!”
