Jo supports new challenge for young entrepreneurs

Local MP Jo Swinson has called on budding young entrepreneurs to take part in the TestTown challenge in Kirkintilloch.

TestTown is a week long programme which will offer innovative individuals between the ages of 16-30 the chance to put forward new ideas for vibrant, redesigned town centres. 

Applications are open to anyone within the age bracket, whether new or experienced in business, with the only requirements being motivation and a creative mind.   

Those selected to take part in the challenge will have the chance to show off their ideas to the public in Kirkintilloch during the TestTown week from 30th June-7th July. 

Anyone interested in this fantastic opportunity and a prize of £10,000 should apply by 16th April. For further details about how to apply please visit:

 Commenting on this initiative, Jo said: 

“I am delighted that TestTown have chosen Kirkintilloch as one of their 6 venues for this exciting new venture. This is a testament to the many creative young individuals in the community.

 “This scheme offers a wonderful chance to not only reinvent Kirkintilloch town centre, but for the chosen winners to display their talents on the national stage. 

“I hope lots of young people in the area will be inspired to take part in this challenge and I look forward to seeing some of the ideas for Kirkintilloch.”
