Do you have an idea for a business, but not sure how to get started? 18-year-old David Newick of West Sussex, England, faced the same problem. Growing up, David loved to tinker with gadgets and computers. As a teen, he found a job at a local electronics store. From this, David dreamed up the idea for a tech support business. To make his dream a reality, David entered the Young Start Up talent competition, a local entrepreneurial competition in which finalists win prizes of products and money to help start a business. The competition motivated David to start his own micro business, Connect-A-Gadget. His business operates strictly online and provides home entertainment, IT, and tech support solutions. David plans to expand his micro business to reach even more customers. His advice? “I would encourage anyone to enter the Young Start Up talent competition.” Who knows? It just might be the inspiration to begin your own micro business!
