Courvoisier seeks “one to watch”
Entrepreneurs are being invited to compete for a £5,000 cash prize, along with the title ‘One to Watch’, as part of private networking organisation Courvoisier The Future 500 (CVTF500) search for 500 new members.
The network was launched in 2007 by cognac manufacturers Courvoisier to link the nation’s most promising people and give them the opportunity to collaborate with each other.
As part of its annual search for new members, which will include entrepreneurs as well as artists and activists, Courvoisier is offering a £5,000 prize to one of this year’s applicants who can demonstrate outstanding success in their field.
In addition, 100 individuals from this year’s new members will be invited to appear in a supplement in The Observer newspaper in November 2008.
Entrepreneurs who wish to apply to join The Future 500, and pitch for the £5,000, must have been running their business for more than one year and employ two or more people.
Applicants are required to describe their success in 500 words to be in with a chance of winning. The deadline for entries is 18 September.
“The inaugural year of the network has proved hugely successful and many active members have been collaborating to benefit their careers,” said Courvoisier brand manager Claire Richards. “We have also been connecting members with each other by setting up breakfast meetings and other events to allow them to interact.”
“Through exclusive offers, events and mentoring, Courvoisier is encouraging members to fulfil their potential,” she added.
