HUDDERSFIELD entrepreneurs have been urged to answer the call and compete for a £10,000 business grant.
Telecoms operator BT Business is seeking nominations for the cash, which aims to recognise someone with “a brilliant, innovative and unique business idea” and the “pioneering qualities needed to succeed”.
For a chance of winning entrepreneurs need to submit a written explanation of the plans for their business and explain how they would spend the money.
A shortlist of five will be chosen and the finalists will be invited to London to meet the judging panel and make their case for being awarded the cash prize.
The winner will also be eligible for a complete free audit of their IT and telecoms systems by BT experts.
The deadline for entries is 6pm on Wednesday.
