Young en­trepreneur praised by Drag­ons’ Den star

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A BUCKS stu­dent has won a na­tional busi­ness award linked to a Drag­ons’ Den star.

Amer­sham and Wy­combe Col­lege stu­dent David Hump­ston, 19, was named na­tional en­trepreneur of the year at the Peter Jones En­ter­prise Academy grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in Lon­don.

He re­ceived the tro­phy and a £5,000 cheque to fur­ther de­velop his busi­ness idea from Den en­trepreneur Peter Jones.

David, who has just com­pleted a BTEC in un­der­stand­ing en­ter­prise and en­trepreneur­ship with the academy, said: “My busi­ness idea is called View­point Videos. It’s an ex­pe­ri­en­tial on­line video com­pany that al­lows cus­tomers to fea­ture in their own ac­tion-movie video.

“This award is a huge boost for my busi­ness and me. Not only will the £5,000 en­able me to ex­pand View­point Videos Ltd, but the pres­tige it car­ries will give me in­valu­able recog­ni­tion.”

Mr Jones said: “David demon­strated all the nec­es­sary qual­i­ties of an en­trepreneur – con­fi­dence, am­bi­tion, en­tre­pre­neur­ial flair and a good busi­ness idea.”
