Grow with the Show

Grow with the Show

Each year, we team up with the University of Lincoln to offer a talented young person aged 18 - 35 in Lincolnshire, who have started a business within the last three years, a chance to Grow with the Show.

2016's winner was Mantle, a newly-established business run by Sophie Bulgin and Aaron Walker, which modifies shipping containers into customised, unique and versatile spaces. Sophie said: "Grow with the Show made a huge difference to us. It saw us generate key business leads at the Lincolnshire Show which then led to developing lasting business relationships. It was a huge boost for us and ensured a strong start to the business. Having support to meet our key client base at no cost at an event the size of the Show was fantastic."

The Grow with the Show winner's prize includes:

- £250 cash prize
- Business mentoring from the Sparkhouse team
- An invitation to the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards from Lincolnshire Media
- A detailed website review worth £300 from Root Studio
- The opportunity to exhibit to more than 60,000 people at the Lincolnshire Show

The runners-up will receive a £100 prize, plus two Society guest badges giving admission to the Lincolnshire Show and the exclusive ringside member's areas.

Applications for the 2017 Grow with the Show competition are open! The closing date for entries is 10 March 2017.
