The Swapplications team

This week Swapplications added yet another award to their impressive run when they were crowned Outstanding Entrepreneurs of the year at the Grow Gloucestershire Showcase Awards held at Cheltenham Racecourse.

This award is the icing on the cake for this Young Enterprise group who have seen success after success in the Young Enterprise Competition. They finished as runners up in the Young Entrepreneurs category at the Cirencester Chamber of Commerce awards in May, they went on to win the South West Regional Finals and then the national product of the year.

The team were overwhelmed to be rewarded by industry experts outside the Young Enterprise programme. After collecting their award Hannah Clinch, Human Resources Director, said “I am so happy that we have been recognised for our hard work this year. The app is a fantastic product and will make a big difference to the education of young people”.

The Grow Gloucestershire Awards are an opportunity to celebrate enterprise in the next generation of our local community and there were numerous business leaders present, as well as the opportunity to network with influential members of the local business environment at the ceremony.

Proud Business Lecturer, Hannah Clark said “At Cirencester College we are always looking to promote enterprise and develop these skills in our students.”
