This morning, the East of England Development Agency (EEDA) in conjunction with the Eastern Daily Press held a breakfast reception to launch their first ever ‘Future 50’ list – a list of fifty entrepreneurs with growing, successful businesses whose progress will be monitored and reported on over the next three years – and Further’s two Founders Steve Jaggard and Zak Ireson both feature.
Just over three years old, Further is one of the youngest businesses recognised in the Future 50 list which was compiled by a panel of judges made up of well known experienced business leaders spanning the public and private sector.
Keynote speakers at the event which was held at the very impressive Open venue in Norwich were Paul Hill, Business Editor of the Eastern Daily Press, Richard Ellis, Chairman of EEDA and Will King, Founder and CEO of global success story ‘King of Shaves’.
“We are pleased to be included in the Future 50 list as, more than anything, it lends credibility and trust to our service offering”, explains Zak. “It is especially rewarding to see us up there as the only business representing the search marketing and social sector.”
The complete Future 50 list will be published as a colour supplement in Wednesday’s Eastern Daily Press. Thanks to Paul Hill and his team for an excellent and refreshingly inspiring corporate networking event.
**Update: Further have beed named to the 2010 EDP Furture 50 list**
