And The Winners Are…
Firstly, a big thank you to everyone that entered the Flyerzone ‘Flying Start’ competition. We have had so many great entries and whittling them down to our top five has been a very difficult process. Having reviewed, researched and discussed the merits of each entry, we are happy to announce that the winners (in no particular order) are…
Click N Mix
Click N Mix (clicknmix.co.uk) is a sweet shop with a difference. Currently 100% online with plans to open a Leeds shop in May, Click N Mix allows its customers to create their own pick and mix order via the one-of-a-kind interface which really has to be seen to be believed. The order is then dispatched via courier or, if you are lucky enough to live in Leeds, hand delivered, in some cases within the hour.
We loved the concept of Click N Mix as well as the passion for the idea expressed within the entry and we are confident the prize will do great things for the business.
Tree House Jewellery
Tree House (www.treehousejewellery.co.uk) is an online and stall based jewellery business looking to put a smile on people’s faces by selling an eclectic range of beautiful, affordable jewellery and jewellery storage. Mother of three Rachel, runs the business whilst being a stay-at-home mum. She has great aspirations for the brand and a desire to ensure every customer gets the best in customer service.
Rachel obviously has an entrepreneurial spirit and a supportive family. Her response to how winning would aid Tree House was very detailed and well thought out. We look forward to helping you realise your dreams for the brand.

BrainCurve have done everything they can to create an environment in which their clients can feel safe and progress the support offered, they now need to tell people about it. This made them a perfect fit for us and we look forward to helping them promote their services within Norwich and Norfolk.
HeadingOut (www.headingoutmag.co.uk) is a magazine created for student, by students. Run by three students of Leeds Metropolitan University, the magazine is a must have companion for students in Leeds, reviewing events, local businesses and nights out, as well as discussing various issues of interest to the local student population.
Being a student in the current financial climate must be a daunting prospect, which makes it even more inspiring to see three students taking their fate in their own hands through a joint venture. We look forward to helping them strengthen their business and hope to see HeadingOut on the stands long after they have finished their degrees.
The Little Letter Company
The last, but by no means least of our five winners is The Little Letter Company (www.littlelettercompany.co.uk). Founder, Stephanie, was looking for a business challenge that she could run without interfering with the up-bringing of her 2 young children.
