We are delighted to welcome the succesfull winners of the HIE funded sponsorship package for young entrepreneurs who will be joining us here at Impact Hub Inverness this year - Nicole Barrett and Rosie Gray. Nicole and Rosie will be with us for the equivalent of a day a week and will benefit from our advice and support as they develop and grow their business ideas.
Nicole has already started her business, Buckie Buddies, which offers companionship, errands and cleaning services to elderly and disabled people within the community. Rosie, from Kincraig, is passionate about her local community, about sustainable food and the great outdoors so we are looking forward to mentoring her as she works towards creating a new business that brings all those strands together.
Based on the strength of applications and with some funding from the Scottish Government, we are also pleased to support a further two young people to develop their business ideas - Kristina Petkova currently a student at UHI here in Inverness, and Kimberley Buckthorp who has created Will I Be Clothing based in Ullapool. We look forward to working with them over the course of the coming Year of Young People 2018!
