There is now another two weeks, up until July 28, to prepare your entry and take the opportunity to review, reward and boost the repu- tation of your business.

The more people that know about your business, the greater the chance of gaining new customers.

Kent Hermansen from Quickloader Australia, winner of New Business Start Up - up to two years of operation - Award in 2012 made this comment about his experience.

He was able to raise the profile of his business and now he is selling his Quickloader invention to mining companies in Western Australia.
