Four local entrepreneurs have each won £500 of funding to help grow their business after triumphing in the Entrepreneurial Barnet Competition, which was organised by Middlesex University, Barnet Council and Barnet and Southgate College.

Juliyah Brown from Barnet won the Borough of Barnet Residents category with her company, Queen Angel Creations, which creates handmade flowers and unique gifts for all occasions.

Juliyah says she will spend the prize on advertising and business support.

David Williams, Director for Corporate Engagement at Middlesex University, commented: “It is always great to celebrate success and especially so in the area of innovation and enterprise.

“I hope that this achievement and publicity will spur these businesses on to real success.”
