Market Prepare Stole The Show!

Posted: 8th October 2014

Market Prepare logoRapidly expanding project management and interior fit-out company, Market Prepare, is celebrating following its most recent accolade for impressive business growth.

The Prince’s Trust Annual Growth Fund Awards recognise the success of young entrepreneurs across Scotland. With ten full time staff and growing, Market Prepare has been awarded the business growth prize. The Princes Trust reported that the Musselburgh-based interiors company “stole the show” on the awards evening itself!

Lee Fitzpatrick, managing director of Market Prepare, comments: “It’s truly warming to have our hard work pay off with this recognition from The Prince’s Trust. My business partner Sean and I set up Market Prepare in 2011 on a local scale; we now cover the entire UK and each week is busier and busier.”

“Working hard to ensure we deliver the highest quality service is central to everything we do. All of our actions are based on integrity, consistency, responsiveness, value and trust. Keeping this front of mind has allowed our reputation to precede us.”

Allan Watt, director of The Prince’s Trust Scotland, says: “The Prince’s Trust helps over 800 young entrepreneurs start up in business each year. It’s important to recognise their success and I’m delighted to have met so many of the young people we have helped to grow and develop their business through essential funding and valuable mentoring support.”

Lee concludes: “The support we have received from the Prince’s Trust over the years has been wonderful. We have clear projections for the year ahead and remain focused upon becoming industry leaders.”
