Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Award for Simon Lyons

Product Design Engineering graduate and founder of Version 22, Simon Lyons has just been announced undergraduate winner of the national Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Awards.

Simon, who graduated with first-class honours in 2013, follows in the footsteps of Ross Kemp (Asap Water Crafts) and Laurence Kemball Cook (Pavegen), who respectively won third and first place in 2013 and 2012. Loughborough is the only partner university to be placed among the prizes for three consecutive years.

Simon is supported by the Studio and will use the top prize of £5,000 to support the manufacture of Geco Hub, an innovative storage system that can be installed anywhere in minutes, without screw fixings.
