ENTRIES for the Local Business Accelerators campaign, supported by The News, have closed.

The campaign is run nationally and offers young small or medium businesses the chance to win a free advertising campaign, and mentor support.

It is run by the Newspaper Society, and regional winners go through to a national final to be in with a chance of being mentored by Dragon’s Den star Deborah Meaden. A panel of judges will now sort through the entries from the Portsmouth area, and invite those who have been shortlisted to make a presentation about why they deserve to win the prize.
