2 min read
We are pleased to announce that FirstPoint USA has been ranked in the top 100 of the best businesses supported the Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust (PSYBT). This independently verified research, supported by the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, identifies the 100 best performing businesses that were funded by the PSYBT since the charity's launch in 1989. Every year PSYBT helps in excess of 600 people to start up and continue in business. in the last 23 years, they have supported over 12,000 young people - so FirstPoint USA are honored to have been nominated in the top 100! Our Chief executive, Andrew Kean (University of Cincinnati Hall of Fame inductee and All-American) founded FirstPoint USA in 2001. FirstPoint USA was developed with the key focus of providing an excellent service to international sportsmen & women seeking the opportunity to pursue their academic and sporting careers in the USA. Andrew Kean had this to say about our recent accolade: "I am delighted that FirstPoint USA have been recognised by both the Royal Bank of Scotland and PSYBT as one of the "100 best businesses" backed by the Princes Trust. Over 12,000 other businesses - spanning a 23 year period - were considered for the 'top-100', so it has made the recognition that little bit more special. It is fair to say that without the PSYBT's initial support, the company would never have got off the ground. Their backing of young, Scottish entrepreneurs is staggering and there are a lot of businesses - including our own - that have a lot to thank the PSYBT for. Although now Glasgow based, FirstPoint USA's roots are proudly in Dunoon, and I hope that we will continue to represent the Argyll region well over the next 11 years!"
