Finalists face Keighley ‘Dragons’

Six finalists in the Bradford Kickstart-backed Biz Factor, a Keighley enterprise competition marking Global Entrepreneurship Week, enter a local version of the Dragon’s Den on Wednesday – with £1,500 of business support as the prize.

They will pitch their new business ideas to four judges: Jane Vincent, founder of recruitment company Horizon; Tim Hogarth, of Queensbury, who co-presents the weekday ITV programme Dickinson’s Real Deal; Bradford businessman Councillor John Pennington and Julian Hotchkiss, proprietor and presenter of Fresh Radio, Skipton.

The event, to be held at The Academy, a retail skills training centre in Cavendish Street, Keighley supported by Kickstart, has been organised by the Keighley campus of Leeds City College in association with Airedale Enterprise Services.

Also on Wednesday, Bradford College hairdressing students will offer fashion cuts, styling and make-up tips during a Hair and Beauty day at Three Valleys Beauty Centre, Keighley.

During the evening a Swap ‘til You Drop ‘swishing party’ – a fusion of fashion, pampering and ethical enterprise – will give women a chance to swap some of their glamorous clothes and accessories. This will be hosted by Bradford women’s enterprise specialist Digitalife.
