The Unloc Enterprise Academy at Portsmouth College has just awarded its first Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award as a result of the college’s big push to promote enterprise and business.
The award was presented to the winner, Rosie Newton of Roses Bakery, at the Portsmouth College Annual Awards Evening by Rachel Lowe, creator of the Destination Board, Unloc director Ben Dowling and the college principal Steve Frampton.
Rosie is a 19-year old outgoing student from Portsmouth College who has founded her own vegan baking business, providing healthy and animal-free products to consumers across Portsmouth and beyond. Roses Bakery is now the main cake stockist for Pie and Vinyl and continues to grow month on month.
The award was selected by the Unloc Enterprise Academy team and awarded by Portsmouth College to recognise their students contribution to business and enterprise.
Rosie Newton said “I was delighted to win the award and it just shows how far Roses Bakery has come. I couldn’t be happier!”.
Steve Frampton, Principal of Portsmouth College said “We are delighted to be acknowledging hard working young people who have gone the extra mile. We hope this Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award is the first of many to come.”
