Tracy receives her certificate from Theo Paphitis
Small business owner Tracy Messer of has received an award certificate from Theo Papthitis at his Small Business Sunday (#SBS) event held at Birmingham’s ICC.
Since the former ‘Dragon’ started #SBS in 2009 there have been 329,000 applications and yet only 2,256 – fewer than 1% – have been chosen so far. Tracy, whose small business was set up at home after designing her own unique wall-mounted dog bowl, said: “It was a fantastic day; the speakers were very inspiring and gave you that extra lift and confidence that your hard work and dedication will eventually pay off.
“It was great to meet other new and established small businesses to share tips and advice. I have only been trading for 18 months so the business is still young. I’m looking to continue growing the business in 2018, and I am especially looking to work with some retail outlets.” 
The free event is put on by the former ‘Dragons Den’ star to celebrate small businesses and bring them together, with guest speakers, networking and sessions with industry experts. 
Tracy’s Wall Mounted Dog Bowl was designed to fix to the wall at any height and stops a dog’s bowl being pushed around the floor. It also makes a great alternative to a bowl stand for those dogs fed at off the ground.
