The overall winner will receive mentoring from Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meaden, pictured, the campaign’s national ambassador.
Deborah said: “I would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s Local Business Accelerators who should all feel extremely proud to have got this far in the competition.
“The first LBA created hundreds of business success stories across the UK and I am confident that we will see hundreds more again this year, as the winners receive the campaign prize of free local newspaper advertising and mentoring.
“We need to do everything we can to support small business owners and entrepreneurs and LBA is helping to do just that.”
Supported by the Government and private sector’s Business in You campaign, LBA has seen 500 local newspapers join forces to provide a boost to promising young businesses.
