2 February 2017 was a big day for Yang For Young Limited and its first product yangBrailler
. As it was the first time for me to pitch on behalf of my own company in front of a panel of judges and dozens of audiences at Sheffield Hallam University.
I was honored to pitch along with seven other fantastic businesses around Sheffield. A University of Sheffield graduate and the founder of Research Retold Mihaela became the winner of £25,000 investment from UK Steel Enterprise.
It was a great surprise at the end that three other businesses were also offered £10,000 investment including myself, Jon from Reach Homes who has developed an affordable eco-housing scheme and Faye of Bearhugs offers a range of gift boxes designed to deliver all the warmth and comfort of a hug to families and friends.
It was great to see how positive other people think about my business. Knowing that what I'm doing will make a difference to our society is what encourages me continue working on it.
