British Shoe Association distributed grants for business development

The British shoe association BFA in November announced the winners who received the first grants under the intensive development program. A new association project was launched this fall. Its essence is that during the year young promising companies will be able to receive business consulting services from BFA experts in order to get a chance to become important players in the shoe industry.

Companies were selected through in-depth interviews. As a result, the first recipients of the consultations will be Beyond leather, Joanne Stoker, Northern Cobbler and Zoe Lee.

Each of them will receive a mentor, with which he will increase the value of his brand and the presence of the company in international markets.

In the same month, the BFA summed up the Footwear Friends Designer Award for young entrepreneurs. Its winner was Nicole La Grange (brand Love Art Wear Art). She received 5000 pounds for the development of her brand. This year's competition was sponsored by Buckingham Consulting and Park Lane Shoes Ltd. Based on materials from the site
