Launch of Rising Star 2020

Launch of Rising Star 2020

Each year, Marketing Derby, gives the opportunity for an up-and-coming entrepreneur to receive a complimentary year of Bondholder membership along with local publicity and invitations to must-attend events.

In 2016, the accolade was awarded to University of Derby graduate Edward Hollands owner of start-up business and Dragon’s Den success story DrivenMedia. Ed says “Being the first Rising Star was a real game-changer for me. The chance to network with the business leaders of Derby and knowing I had their full support was a fantastic opportunity and really set me off on the right foot”.

This year, the competition was so high, that two local businesses were awarded the title of Rising Star; Sonia Sohal who owns The Fit, and Abbi Burns who runs Darley Dance Productions.
