Gor Kartel, co-founder at Craft Resin, said: “We are delighted to have won this award, especially when there were so many great businesses on the programme.

“We have only been trading for just over one year so, to learn so many new skills to help us to grow our business further, and faster, has been excellent.

“We are so grateful for the opportunity and for the support that we have received”.

Michelle Davis, Director of 10×10 Business Services said: “To show such profitable growth in the first year, and from a standing start is amazing.

“We were so pleased with the standard of the pitches.
