8 shortlisted for the June/July 2010 Grand Ideas Awards

Congratulations to the following 8 young entrepreneurs who have been shortlisted for the monthly 1,000 Shell LiveWIRE Grand Ideas Awards.

Lisa Bean (LMBT Solutions), London
LMBT Solutions is a consultancy firm specialising in student and graduate development and networking. Under the registered trademark of Gradvert the company has been established to provide students and graduates with the tools, training, development and networking opportunities needed to achieve success in business.

Luke Boulton-Major (Karma Active), Bristol
Karma Active currently provide alternative sports programmes to school children, and would like to develop an instructor pack which is purchased by potential instructors and trains them in how to deliver the Martial Arts Pack for their schools and community groups.

Fred Clough (Scholify.com), London
Scholify com is a website designed to promote collaborative learning. Dedicated to all things student Scholify allows students to create work spaces to work on group projects and also discuss ideas related to their studies with the wider community. Scholify provides a free platform for young people to interact and collaborate on academic and educational themed topics.

Ijeoma Iwuoha (myTaskAngel), Newcastle upon Tyne
myTaskAngel is a online service that enables people overwhelmed with their daily to-do lists find qualified and eligible "angels" within their neighbourhood or community to complete these tasks for them. This service works by allowing you post a task you need completed, specify your budget and then relax and wait for the response of willing angels within our trusted network who are keen on completing these tasks for you.

Natalie Pierce-Jones (Fairypants), Chester
Fairypants is a complete range of dresses, corsets, fairy tutus, jewellery and accessories, all handmade by me. I offer a bespoke service from start to finish, along with a large selection of 'off the peg' items. For example, my customers can see a dress that I have designed and made, then they can alter it to suit their purpose. This is perfect for customers who want a bespoke dress, but have no idea where to start when designing it themselves.

Alexander Robinson (Trendring), Southampton
My business is a personalised review website, connecting social networking and ecommerce. Peoples confidence to make shopping decisions is strongly influenced by their friends and family, who often accompany them to the shops. However, when buying online there is usually no opportunity to discuss prospective purchases with friends, as they are not present.

Lorna Syson, Coventry
Creates hand-made sculptural textiles for home soft furnishings from my Midlands based studio. Also works on larger scale installations for hotels, shop decor and interior designers, offering a completely unique and bespoke service.

Conrad Thornton (Green Street Media), Sheffield
Green Street Media is a green, eco-friendly marketing company offering pavement advertising across every city in the UK. We etch adverts into any hard stone or concrete surface from pavements to walls. The only cleaning fluid we use is H2O pure clean water. Adverts leave a clean green impression wherever customers want it.

* 1 minute elevator pitch videos from each of the 8 candidates will be posted soon in the 'My Business Kit' section of this site so that Shell LiveWIRE members can vote for their favourite.

Think you've got a Grand Idea for a new business or project? Apply online for the chance to win 1,000 at www.shell-livewire.org/awards



One award each month is sponsored by NCGE (National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship) as part of their FlyingStart programme for graduates.
