Agency in running for a happy birthday


A Cornish marketing agency has been shortlisted for Start-up of the Year at the South West Business and Community Awards.

Kraken Marketing was founded a year ago this month by Lyssa-Fee Crump after a decade of working in-house with Cornish companies.

Entrepreneur James Phipps, chairman of Excalibur Group, was part of the judging panel and said: “Judging this year’s awards was tough. Every entry was of a very high standard and each one was unique which made the decision harder.

“I’m very proud of the quality of businesses that we have in this region and these awards give them the true recognition that they deserve.”

Winners will be announced during an online ceremony on April 29.
