£20,000 to mark 20 years

A firm of chartered surveyors are celebrating 20 years in business with a £20,000 investment fund designed to give start-ups in Cumbria a helping hand.

Solomons Europe is celebrating its anniversary by inviting entrepreneurs with businesses under three years old to pitch for £5,000 to help them grow and flourish.

Entries for the Pay Forward start-up fund will be whittled down before finalists negotiate one final hurdle – a Dragons' Den-style pitch to five business professionals, who will determine which have the best chance of success.

Winners will receive a cash prize of £1,000 and a three-year funding option.

They will also be able to call on the advice and expertise of the panel of business professionals during the three years.
