Matthew spoke of his delight at winning the award:
“My team and I are delighted to be recognised as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year by FSB East Midlands. This is a testament to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure we provide a first class service to our customers, and I would like to thank my dedicated team for their continued efforts because, without them, this would not be possible.
I would like to extend my congratulations to all finalists across the eleven categories; it is fantastic to see so many thriving businesses in the East Midlands and within the FSB hub. I have a real desire for inspiring young entrepreneurs and hope that this award goes some way to showing that with hard work and determination anything is possible”
Matthew was in fantastic company across the nominees for the award, competing with Peter Watson and Brad Mckenny from Distract, Alex Smith of Excellence Health & Wellbeing Ltd, and Sophie Watkinson, the owner of Do-Dance.

We would like to thank the Federation of Small Businesses for selecting us as their winner and want to congratulate all the other amazing finalists.
