The DediPower Digital Awards are a fantastic, refreshing initiative for business and an exciting project to be involved with. They have been running now for two years and recognise young talent and business entrepreneurship for individuals who really want to make it with their own ideas but require support in the form of financial backing and/or business mentoring.
I am delighted to announce we had a huge number of entries in 2011 with some really excellent ideas coming from the entrepreneurs amongst you, and some terrific ideas they were too. We have been through an initial process to shortlist the entries taking into account all aspects from the idea itself to the financials and business growth potential and we are delighted to announce the shortlisted entries are:
