Semi-Finalists, Red Button Design Final 10 HSBC Unipreneurs!

James and I spent 3 1/2 hours on Tuesday in HSBC tower, Canary Wharf, London pitching to 6 Judges as one of the final 10 entrants in HSBC's £20,000 Unipreneurs Competition.

Admittedly we forwent sleep the prior night to develop a range of printed leaflets and brocures and spent a total of 13 3/4 hours travelling to and from the interview with london traffic so bad I had to get changed in the back of a black cab!

Nevertheless I think we did brilliantly and we will be rolling out some new branding to the website and this blog throughout the lifespan of the competition.

We will find out shortly if we cut it at Canary Wharf and will get through to the final 5 to pitch to an audience of 200 Business Individuals in London's BAFTA Theatre for the £20,000 prize.
Until then, keep your limbs crossed for us!

The judges were:

Lorna Collins, Director, Flying Start, NCGE;
James Murray-Wells, MD, Glasses Direct;
Huw Morgan, Head of Business Banking, HSBC;
Emma Crosby, Presenter, Sky News;
Jenny Little, Enterprise Editor, Financial Mail on Sunday;
Prof. Robert Blackburn, Director, Small Business Research Centre, Kingston University.
