Richard Reed, co-founder of Innocent Smoothies, is heading up a brand new show on BBC Three which starts tonight and aims to find Britain’s next young entrepreneurs…
A six part series, the show will see Richard — equipped with £1million at his disposal — looking to nurture and invest in the next wave of young entrepreneurs.
In his early 20s, Richard and two friends had a business idea that no one believed in. Eventually one man took a chance on them and their company was born, turning Richard and his friends into millionaires. Now with his own opportunity to make a difference, Richard wants to do the same for a new generation of start-up superstars.
Aiding Richard in this difficult process will be a team of expert judges, including SBTV‘s very own Digital Media Manager, Dirujan Sabesan, alongside former apprentice winner Tim Campbell, Martin of SquarePie and Nicko of ClimateCars.
Tune in to Be Your Own Boss tonight at 9pm over on BBC Three.
