Apr 14, 2016 | Business

A Peterlee businesswoman has been named one of the North East’s top young entrepreneurs in a list compiled by a regional newspaper.

Bethany Ainsley, founder and CEO of Nouveau Dance and Fitness based at Novus Business Centre on Peterlee Business Park, made The Journal’s 35 Under 35 list, which also featured local business men and women including recently-crowned millionaire Vicky Pattison.

The article that accompanied the list stated: “Social entrepreneur Bethany Ainsley turned her back on a potential West End career to establish Nouveau Dance & Fitness.

“Based in Peterlee, the business brings fitness and dancing classes to schools, communities and the third sector.”

Bethany also made headlines late last year when she won Young Business Person of the Year at the Journal and Evening Gazette Business Executive of the Year Awards.
