The runners-up were musicians Angus Ross and Chris Elsheikhi, founders of Bainbridge Music.

Grant Laidlaw, PSYBT regional manager, said: “It is a huge challenge whatever your age to decide to set up your own business, but we are seeing increasing numbers of young people who are willing to take this step, and we feel privileged to be able to provide them with the funding and advice required to realise their self-employment ambitions.”
