Not just a UK FedEx finalist, baby

[ November 17, 2021   //   ]

FedEx Corp has chosen Cumbria-based Dirtbags Climbing to represent the UK in the final of its Small Business Grant award. The firm, which upcycles old climbing gear and outdoor textiles to create new products for the outdoor recreation industry, was selected from a shortlist of 15 other finalists.

The competition is running for the first time as a single pan-European contest, open to for-profit small businesses with 50 employees or fewer across 16 countries. The 15 finalists will now compete for the Grand Prize (£50,000) or one of the three Judges Choice Awards: Digital Excellence, Sustainability Champion, and Innovation Mastermind (£15,000 each).
