Ben Jeffries recently won the initiative for the Kent region in 2016 with his company Influencer – an agency that connects global brands with famous individuals from a range of social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Ben wowed the judges with his knowledge surrounding the area, and his enthusiasm and passion for his business even when under hard questioning from the judges, made him a clear winner for this years initiative.

With the prize fund and the network he has built from partaking in the initiative, Ben now plans to launch on CrowdCube to fund his web platform, with hopes of exploding onto the market.
