AN ILKESTON entrepreneur who founded an online magazine offering a voice for today’s youngsters from his Cotmanhay bedroom is up for a national business award.

Ashley Allen, 23, published the first edition of Suited magazine last month.

He said: “Me and my friends were just chatting and saying there wasn’t really a magazine that covered all of our interests. We joked about setting one up but I decided to try it out.

As a result of Suited’s success, Ashley has made it through to the final four nominees for the Young Star of Enterprise by Real Business.

He will find out if he has scooped the gong at an awards ceremony in London on November 14.
