The College of North East London and its Tottenham Green Enterprise Centre would like to congratulate Michael Lowe on winning the Its the Biz award at the National Business Awards 2003, held on Tuesday 11 November at Londons Grosvenor House Hotel.
Michael, 17, from Tottenham, started his company Domain Music because of his love of music and has gone from strength to strength. Having been involved with Young Enterprise last year, this sparked Michaels desire to run his own company.
He contacted the Princes Trust, who put him in contact with the Tottenham Green Enterprise Centre, which provides business training, advice and guidance to entrepreneurs and new businesses. They helped him set up a business plan and work out cash flow and in August of this year helped him to set up Domain Music as a limited company. And all this whilst he studies for three A levels in Business Studies, Music Technology and English Language!
Domain Music is an artist management company that currently represents two up-and-coming performers, Nutty P and singer-songwriter Simone Dow, also known as MC Madness. Funding came from an initial 1,000 grant from New Deal for Communities and, with the aid of the Enterprise Centre, the company has since secured other sponsors.
Malcolm Gorman, Director of the Tottenham Green Enterprise Centre said I am so pleased that Michael has won this award as he has worked really hard. I am also pleased that our Centre has been able to help him develop his business, from set up through to a limited company that is now achieving recognition and success. His story encapsulates everything that the Centre was set up to support.
