*UPDATE – This competition is now closed and our winner is Sally Lawton!
“My business partner and I run a theatre school and performance space called ‘The Houldsworth School of Performing Arts’. As a brand new start up, with a very tight budget, we face many of the challenges new companies struggle with today, which is why winning this competition was a great morale booster for us.
I noticed the Epson competition on Smarta’s Twitter account and thought ‘why not?’ and entered. When I saw the tweet saying I’d won, I couldn’t quite believe it!
We’re constantly printing scripts, leaflets and posters that reflect our company and promote the work we’re doing. Producing this content and material to a high standard is absolutely crucial for us. The Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4535 DWF printer we won is ideal for our needs. It’s perfect timing too – there’s a big launch in May, and so we’re now best placed to prepare for and promote this.”
Sally Lawton, co-founder of The Houldsworth
Congratulations to Sally, and thank you to all those who entered. Keep an eye on the blog for our next competition!*
When it comes to embracing technologies and looking for new ways to deliver growth, recent findings from our Epson Business Council research highlights that the innovative spirit of the British entrepreneur is alive and kicking, with 51% of British small businesses saying that IT is an integral part of their drive for business growth, increased innovation and productivity.
However, despite our enthusiasm in the UK, British small businesses are lagging significantly behind our European peers, particularly in comparison to France and Germany, where 76% consider IT integral to growth, and still quite far behind the Mediterranean countries, 73% in Spain and 68% in Italy.
