Fedex Grant Competition

This month Annabel Giraud-Telme entered the FedEx Small Business Grant Contest, which is celebrating its 5th anniversary and offering £10,000 to the winner of the grant to invest in the business.

As we only found out about it a few days before the application deadline, we rushed to complete the application, the not so small matter of a video and update the business plan! Luckily enough, Harry Ford at AVP Photography & Filming Services shot the video in our studio and we were pretty happy with the result!

Whilst we didn’t win the competition, it was a real joy to realise that; we’ve got wonderful friends who rally around in times of support, there is nothing quite like the creative buzz of a looming deadline and it’s amazing to see the results with no budget. We learnt a lot about the video making process and are really looking forward to next year’s competition which we already have planned into our schedule!
