Young Entrepreneur Luke Adams has won the 16 – 24 Entrepreneur 2017 sponsored by the Federation of Small Businesses at the Youth and Business Achievement Awards (YABAA's) 2017.
Simon Gotch, Chairman of Skills Training Uk and Judge of YYABAA's 2017, said: "Luke stood out as a very worthy Winner of 16-24 Entrepreneur of the Year Award at this year’s YABBA’s.
"Luke started his lighting and sound business with a friend it 4 years ago whilst still at school has now evolved into, “Luke Adams Lighting” , employing his Dad to drive to the events with all their gear.
"As his business developed, he has invested his profits in more advanced equipment and now competes toe to toe with bigger, more established players. I was amazed to learn that Luke has also secured himself a prestigious Apprenticeship in lighting and sound at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, running his growing company in his ‘spare time’.
"These awards are very important to the young entrepreneurs as they give valuable airtime to their businesses in the local community with the support of sponsors such as the Federation of Small Businesses."
