Charles Handy and his award-winning photographer wife Elizabeth are putting together a promotional booklet highlighting the thriving social and business entrepreneurs in Tottenham. The 12 selected men and women will become the face of Tottenham’s thriving businesses in the booklet, which is a bid to inspire others to start, build and grow their own business.

The project was devised during a recent visit to Tottenham by the couple, when they met business owners.

The Made In Tottenham project will convene a Dragons Den-style panel to select the 12 faces of fresh business in Tottenham, from which an alumni group will be formed to strengthen the local business and entrepreneurial community.

The opportunity is open to business owners who are under 40 years old, who live or work in Tottenham and who have been in business for at least one year.
