For the second year in a row, The Potting Shed were asked by Schroders to not only design all the collateral for the Schroders Bright Ideas entrepreneur competition and event, but to also provide design workshops for all the short-listed entrants.
The finals’ evening was a great success for all concerned and we’d like to congratulate all the finalists. It was a pleasure and a source of inspiration for us as a company to give our time to this event and we look forward to raising the bar next year.

Finalists argued their cases, gave financial projections and breakdowns and shred their vision of the future.After a tense ten minutes of mentors deliberation behind closed doors Sir Fabian Malbon announed Ranjan Vahdra and Tenease the winner.
