Chris has been shortlisted for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award for his business One Utility Bill, designed to solve the problem of splitting bills in a shared student household.

‘One Utility Bill’ is fully Financial Conduct Authority compliant, able to offer consumer credit, and has successfully attracted angel investors. The system is fully automated and seeks to offer to best deal for students.  

We wish Chris the best of luck!
