Social enterprise makes top five

Venture Trust's social enterprise has been shortlisted for the Local Business Accelerators competition run by the Edinburgh Evening News and Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.

Up against a shortlist of five local businesses, we enter the den in the New Year for an opportunity to win free advertising and a chance to be mentored by TV 'dragon' Deborah Meaden.

Our commercially minded social enterprise, V T Enterprises Ltd operates a hostel and adventurous outdoor activities in the beautiful, wild and remote community of Applecross, Wester Ross coupled with individual and team training and development across Scotland. As part of the Venture Trust family, we’re backed by 30 years of experience and expertise in experiential learning and a talented staff team delivering wilderness-based personal development programmes to inspire, support and encourage people to achieve more positive futures.

Amelia Morgan, who heads up the social enterprise commented, "we're delighted to make the shortlist... this is an enormous boost for our social business in terms of profile and potential growth. We're excited about the prospect of presenting to the panel."
