Working with local start-up mentors and entrepreneurs, the Oxfordshire estate has put together its own programme designed to support locally-based firms.
The competition is open to any business, which is less than two years old or has fewer than five employees, is based within 20 miles of Blenheim, and can provide something which could be stocked in their shops or cafes. Applications will need to be submitted by the 7th May and the successful candidates will be notified by 21st May. They will then have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to Blenheim’s senior management team over the summer. After undergoing presentation training, they will take part in a final pitch on 24th June when the winning applicant will be selected and awarded with a contract to supply their products to the Estate’s retail or catering outlets.
In addition to the contract, the winner will also receive ongoing tips and advice from expert business mentors along with members of the Blenheim management team.
