Shining the spotlight

Since 2008 the Challenge has been welcomed and recognised in the business community as an effective way of shining the spotlight on new enterprises currently being developed in the North East. Over 80% of entrants last year said that they were not currently receiving any support for their business startup and this is where you come in…

THIS YEAR’S PARTNERS

Media Partner – BQ Magazine

Entrepreneurs are our thing at BQ, and so we’re delighted to continue our support for the If We Can You Can challenge which has played such a valuable part in extending the North East’s entrepreneurial community. Taking those with ideas, and giving them the confidence and the exposure to allow them to grow into great businesses, is an art that the IWCYC team have really perfected.

As a dedicated supporter of entrepreneurship, BQ is making a real and tangible contribution to local, regional and national economic growth across the UK.

We are completely unique in what we aim to achieve as a media brand; a brand which has established a loyal audience of high growth SMEs as well as leading business influencers.

They wholeheartedly believe in BQ’s focus on people – those individuals that are challenging the traditional ways of doing things. And IWCYC helps us to add to their ranks, year on year.
